Kerala: Communist govt asks journalists to leave Sabarimala, devotees see conspiracy to desecrate temple

With directing the media to stay away from the shrine, the Pinarayi Vijayan government may get a free hand in using police force to target the devotees.

In a rather suspicious act, the Communist government of Kerala through its state police have informed media present around the temple and also at Pamba to vacate the area as police officers claim that there are inputs of an attack being planned on the media, reported ANI.

The recent diktat by the Kerala government has disturbed the devotees of Sabarimala, as they see a well-planned plot by the Kerala government to use such orders to ask media to leave the premises and then use the brutal police force to remove the devotees from the shrine to allow few women enter the Sabarimala shrine on the last day.

According to some devotees, the Kerala government may use huge force to evict devotees present near the temple by depicting that they were creating violence against the state. With directing the media to stay away from the shrine, the Pinarayi Vijayan government may get a free hand in using police force to target the devotees. It is also feared that, if at all some media organisations decide to stay back, there might be concerted efforts to target the media personnel so that the government can claim that there was an attack on media and can use force against protesters.

K Surendran, General Secretary of Kerala BJP said that they have a clear evidence that Kerala Government is secretly putting in efforts to violate the traditions of Holy Sabarimala. “We personally witnessed Journalists leaving by tractor from Sabarimala. Police have also decided to suspend Internet and Mobile connectivity in Sabarimala. This is a clear indication of the Governments intent to push entry of women on the last day before the sacred temple closes for the month”.

Interestingly, journalists of some media organisations seemed happy to leave the premises as soon as Government demanded, who usually restrain from obliging to such diktats, said Surendran. “We have no clue despite serious exploration as to who threatened them and what was the threat? Is the Government intends to turn Sabarimala into a battlefield and shed blood there? We hereby warn that Government that this is a very dangerous game and they are playing with fire”.

Some Devotees of Lord Ayyappa see a large conspiracy of the Kerala government to not only create chaos near the shrine but also discredit and insult Hindus by depicting them in a bad manner.

Few others believe that Kerala government may block the mobile services and ask the devotees to leave so that the government can allow a group of women including Rehana Fatima to enter the temple

The alleged controversy around Sabarimala shrine comes after the Supreme Court in its recent judgement had ordered Sabarimala Shrine to open its doors to women of all ages, repealing the age-old tradition to not let women of a reproductive age of 10-50 enter the Sabarimala shrine.
