The Sabarimala Karma Samithi, a united Hindu organisation has written a letter appealing to all the likeminded Hindu organisations, groups and individuals to come together to peacefully protest against the decision of the Supreme Court of allowing women of all age group to enter the Sabarimala Shrine.

The Sabarimala Karma Samithi, a united front to bring all the individuals and groups to plan and execute all possible acts peacefully and legally was set up on October 8, 2018. The Samithi has been set up to protect the age-old customs and traditions practised at the Sabarimala shrine. The Samithi consists of important stakeholders comprising members from the Pandalam royal family, Hindu saints, legal luminaries and members of Hindu organisations.

In its appeal to the Hindu devotees, the Samithi has criticised the Supreme Court’s judgement to allow women from age 10-50 to enter the Sabarimala shrine and accused it of interfering with the customs, traditions and faith of the people. The Samithi has further said that the Court has not taken into account the great traditions followed at Sabarimala temple, citing the unique nature of God being a ‘Celibate’ (Nasthika Brahmachari).

The United Hindu front also criticised the Kerala government for its deliberate attempt to break the traditions by allowing few activists and other people with a dubious background to enter the shrine. They accused the Communist Kerala government, who advertise themselves as non-believers, of destroying longheld customs and traditions being maintained at Sabarimala temple. The Samithi also expressed its fear that the government will not spare other temples with its ‘mischief’ of interfering with the Hindu Customs.

In its letter, the Sabarimala Karma Samithi has questioned the hypocrisy of the Kerala government on why they do not act on Muslims and Christians but rather intervene with Hindu traditions. The Samithi said that situation is ‘very alarming’ in the state after the Communist government is forcefully trying to enter women into the temple. It also expressed its anguish against the government’s high handedness after it lodged cases against Hindu devotees for peacefully protesting against the government.

The Samithi has appealed to the people, especially the Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan to understand and appreciate the sentiments and sensibilities of the fellow Hindus and support the movement. It has asked to conduct peaceful protests by organising Nama Japa Yatras and Yajnas every day. The Samithi has also planned various seminars to propagate the importance of maintaining temple traditions and the importance of the existence of the temples. It has also planned to provide legal and financial help to thousands of people who have been arrested and also a signature campaign will be started and presented before the Supreme Court starts the hearing.

The Sabarimala Karma Samithi in the letter has asked the people for monetary support to file review and fresh writ petitions to reestablish the customs of the Sabarimala temple. It further said that the Sabarimala issue is a do-or-die situation for Hindus and also expressed hope regarding the outcome after seeing the mass awakening of the Hindus regarding the Sabarimala issue.

The Kerala government has been receiving severe criticism for its interference in the Sabarimala case. Recently, the Kerala High Court while hearing a petition seeking to restrict entry of non-Hindus in Sabarimala temple, had expressed its displeasure over the police excesses at the Sabarimala temple. The Kerala High Court came down heavily on the Kerala Communist government for interfering unnecessarily in the daily affairs of Sabarimala temple and had asked the Communist government would stop interfering in the temple affairs.
