Sabarimala Set To Open For All Women Today, Kerala On Edge

POLLDo you think Sabarimala temple should have permanently enhanced security to avoid protests on entry of women?

"None would be stopped nor would anyone be allowed to take law into their hands". Another woman from Alappuzha district of Keala, said to be in the below 50 years age group, who was on the way to Sabarimala armed with the Supreme Court order was stopped from proceeding at the Pathanamthitta bus terminal by passengers.

Even though the police personnel gave them protection and allowed them to move further, the family, after walking a short distance, made a decision to return as angry activists of Ayyappa Dharma Sena surrounded them and asked them to go back. The temple opened for the first time for women between the age of 10 and 50 on Wednesday, turning over the age-old custom of not admitting them based on a 28 September Supreme Court verdict.

Commenting on the threats issued by the Hindu outfits over the Sabarimala temple issue, the BJP leader said, "It's a fight between Hindu Renaissance and Obscurantism".

Liby said she would climb the hills and no one had the right to violate the freedom granted by the Supreme Court.

Protests raged in Nilakkal and Pampa ahead of the opening of Sabarimala temple at 5 pm on Wednesday.

The BJP and its NDA partners have backed a 12-hour "hartal" called by Sabarimala Action Council to protest the police action against devotees.

A temple in southern India that's one of the largest Hindu pilgrimage centres in the world is set to open its doors to females of menstruating age following a ruling by the country's top court. She had to put up with the protestors at the temple, who created a ruckus in trying to stop her. Stones were thrown at them outside the police van and lathis were snatched from them by the mob.

Nikita Azad, who started the campaign, told the BBC at the time that there was no "right time" to go into a temple and that women should have the right to go "wherever they want to and whenever they want to".

Some activists of the Sabarimala Achara Samrakshana Samiti, who had stayed back at Nilakkal, also allegedly prevented media persons from carrying out their professional duty.

In another incident of violence against women, a reporter from The News Minute, Saritha S. Balan, was attacked by a mob of 20 men while was she travelling in a KSRTC bus. Police said that every devotee will have straight passage to Sabarimala.

Very few police personnel were present when the incidents happened. On Tuesday, devotees took to the streets to "screen" vehicles and prevent girls and women between the ages of 10 and 50 from visiting the holy Hindu shrine.

The Sabarimala temple doors would be closed on October 22 after the five-day monthly prayer during the Malayalam month of Thulam.

He claimed to have the support of several "scientists" that concurred with the view that the "positive energy" in a temple can be polluted by the entry of menstruating women.
