After escorting women inside Sabarimala, Kerala government arrests women trying to enter the Vavar Mosque

Six people of the Hindu Makal Katchi have been arrested by Kerala for trying to enter the Vavar mosque.

The Kerala government has arrested three women of a Hindu outfit for attempting to enter the Vavar mosque at Erumely in Kerala on Monday evening.

The Vavar mosque is located en route to the Sabarimala hill shrine and is often visited by pilgrims travelling to Sabarimala, but like most mosques, it does not permit women to enter the prayer hall.

However the three women, identified as Revathy and Susheela Devi from Tiruppur and Gandhimathi from Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu, allegedly belong to a Hindu fringe group called the Indu Makkal Katchi or Hindu Makkal Katchi accompanied by three men of the same outfit were arrested for trying to hurt religious sentiments and for trying to instigate communal tension, according to Kozhinjambara police.

“They wanted to create communal tension. The police knew about their visit to Palakkad and security was tightened at all seven check posts near the district. The group were finally found and taken into custody at the Velathavalam check post in Palakkad,” a source told The News Minute.

The three had earlier this week, announced that they would be visiting the Vavar mosque as they felt that if women could enter the Sabarimala temple, they should also be allowed to enter the mosque.

The group has been charged under section 153 A of the IPC (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc.) and will be presented before the magistrate after the police record their arrest.

The Chief of Hindu Makkal Katchi, Arjun Sampath in September 2018, at the time when SC announced its verdict on Sabarimala had dubbed the judgement as a “big shock” for all devotees of Lord Ayyappa. He had then urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to bring a bill in Parliament to ensure “status quo at the Sabarimala temple, to allow men alone in the temple”.

Last week, acting on the communist government’s instructions, two ultra-left activists Bindu Ammini and Kanakdurga were smuggled into Sabarimala Temple in the wee hours using state power.

This conspiracy aided by the Kerala government, who have earlier also attempted several times to allow activists and non-Hindus to enter the Sabarimala shrine, attracted immense protest, as it is being perceived as a mockery of the faith of millions of Swami Ayyappa devotees, who have respected the temple’s age-old tradition.

The intolerance of the Communist government and the zealotry of liberals has created an extremely tensed atmosphere in the state. Several people have criticised the stand taken by the communist government on the issue and have called out the double standard.

Kerala has been converted into a battleground as the government’s conspiracies and atrocities to desecrate the Sabarimala temple and its long-drawn traditions seizes to stop.

In the past few days, Kerala has witnessed widespread violence and protests after the constant attempts by the communist government to desecrate the temple traditions were opposed by Hindu organisations. The Sabarimala Karma Samiti, an umbrella organisation of Hindu groups had called for a 12-hour bandh in the state.

On January 2, after the government sneaked two leftist activists into the temple, a member of the Sabarimala Karma Samiti was stoned to death allegedly by CPIM workers. Several BJP workers supporting the bandh were also attacked by government-supported goons.
