Attack on Sabarimala traditions: Kerala church extends support to communist government’s ‘Women’s Wall’

Ironically, when the Hindu devotees of Sabarimala temple have been running peaceful campaigns to maintain age-old traditions, non-Hindus and non-devotees have been hell-bent on mocking and destroying the same.

Amidst the wrath faced by the Communist government in Kerala from several opposition leaders over its decision to organise the ‘Vanitha Mathil’ or the ‘Women’s Wall’, on the New year’s day, Jacobite Syrian Church, a prominent Christian church in Kerala on Sunday was seen extending its support to the Kerala Government for the same.

Women’s Wall was something which was planned by the CPM government to protest against those opposing women’s entry into the Sabarimala temple.

The Jacobite Syrian Church’s decision came when literally all Hindu organisations including Pulaya Mahasabha led by Shri Neelakandan Master, NSS, Yogakshema Sabha have stood up against the ‘divisive wall’ sponsored by the CPM Government against the Sabarimala temple traditions.

Political parties like BJP and BDJS who are leading the protests against the anti-Hindu stance taken by the CPM government and also against Kerala police’ brutality on the Ayyappa devotees, and other major non-Communist parties, including Congress, have shown resentment against the divisive agenda of the CPM and its allies.

The predictions of many analysts over the row in Sabarimala calling it a clear agenda of communal polarisation, the plot devised over the years by several missionaries in Kerala to destroy Sabarimala traditions, now fall in place as the Jacobite Syrian Church, which is known for its conversion activities, has declared open support to women entering the temple.

The Jacobite Church intends to gather 1 Lakh women for the protest against Sabarimala which is nothing but an orchestrated act against Hindus.

According to Jacobite Church’s former official spokesperson Fr Varghese Kallappara, the Jacobite Church has asked its followers to take part in the Women’s Wall. “We hope nearly one lakh Jacobite women will take part in the Women’s Wall. It is the policy of Jacobite Church to lend support to those who help us in crisis. That’s why we’ve taken a stance in favour of the LDF Government on the Women’s Wall’s issue,” he said.

Reports suggest that Jacobite support for the Women Wall is not because it genuinely is in favour of gender equality but actually it is a quid pro quo to the communist government’s favourable intervention against the Malankara Orthodox Church over the Supreme court’s status quo orders, in the Piravom church issue and not its commitment to gender equality.

Various missionaries in Kerala have targeted Sabarimala over the years as it has always stood tall, in the way of these partisans, as a sentinel of Hindu beliefs, over the last decades where Kerala has seen massive conversion activities.

Continuous efforts have been made to destroy the temple and the traditions which are the biggest hurdle for missionary conversion in that area. This is clearly the reason why people who do not even believe in Hindu religion are making an attempt to enter Sabarimala.

Ironically, the Hindus are fine with the age-old traditions followed by the temple but it is only those people who all their life have maligned and mocked Hindu religion are the ones who now stand in support of the Supreme court verdict.

Initially, women like Rehana Fatima and Mary Sweety, who are known for being sponsored by some missionaries, tried to enter the temple. Later, 20 women lead by Selvi Mano attempted to enter the temple. These 20 women were from an NGO called Manithi which is in Tamil Nadu and works for Christian Missionary organisations.

The communist government’s agenda to hurt Hindu traditions was further exposed when non-Hindu activists, who were not devotees of Sabarimala temple, were escorted by the state police to visit the temple.

And now with Jacobite Syrian Church which is an Oriental Orthodox Church based in Kerala, extending its support to the Kerala government’s erratic decision, the unpleasant tactics these institutions are outlining against the Hindus lay in the open.
