Four policeman dressed in plain clothes accompanied two women to Sabarimala on Jan 2: Police to Court

The Kerala government led by Pinarayi Vijayan has been facing massive protests after it deliberately allowed politically motivated ‘activists’ to enter the shrine and violate age-old customs.

On Thursday, a senior officer of the Kerala police made a disturbing revelation to the Kerala High Court stating that four policemen disguised as civilians protected and aided two middle-aged left-wing women to enter the Sabarimala shrine on January 2nd.

According to the reports, Pathanamthitta Superintendent of Police (SP) T Narayanan while informing the Kerala High Court claimed that the two Communist party workers- Bindu and Kanaka Durga were allowed to enter the Sabarimala shrine through the gate meant for the staff of the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB) accompanied by the Kerala policemen. He further said that in view of security reasons, the policemen had to accompany two women to “Sannidhanam”

The Kerala police have submitted an affidavit in the Kerala High Court after the court-appointed high-powered committee on Sabarimala had asked for a report regarding the shocking incidents that took place on January 2. The High Court-appointed monitoring committee had slammed Kerala Police for taking unauthorised steps to facilitate the entry of the two CPIM female activists Bindu and Kanakadurga causing huge embarrassment for the Pinarayi Vijayan led Kerala government.

The affidavit further added that the Kerala police aided two women through the special gates as they wanted to avoid any commotion at the holy eighteen steps, leading to the shrine and to avoid any protest by devotees and activists.

“In the said circumstances, it was obligatory on the part of the police to protect the life and liberty of these two women in their attempt to trek Sabarimala on January 2, which right was conferred on them by the judgment of the honourable Supreme Court,” the affidavit added

The Kerala police have further submitted that they had exercised their operational freedom on December 24 last year, when they had prevented those two women from entering the shrine as they were severe protests against allowing them to enter Sannidhanam. On January 2, the police assessed the security situation at Sabarimala, decided that it was “conducive” for the women to enter the shrine and accorded protection to the two, the affidavit said.

“The police also decided to provide them cover in a civil dress so as to avoid the attention of the protesters, if any, at Sabarimala. The entry of these two women to the Sabarimala temple was legal and proper and the same was in accordance with the dictum laid down by the honourable apex court,” the affidavit stated.

SP Narayanan has added that the police were constitutionally obligated and statutorily bound to accord protection to the lives and liberties of the two women and they had acted accordingly. He said on January 2, a total of 93,120 devotees had come to Sabarimala.

The two women, accompanied by the policemen entered the Sabarimala shrine and reached the Sannidhanam at 3.52 am on that day. The police claimed that they had a peaceful “darshan” and no devotees were present at Sabarimala shrine at that point and there were no protests at the shrine.

The Kerala police failing to protect Hindu devotees, however, has blamed right-wing outfits for the severe protests at the Sabarimala. The Kerala police have said that attempts were made by certain right-wing outfits and a prominent political party to breach the peaceful atmosphere that had prevailed in Sabarimala and in the state under the guise of protesting the entry of the two women into the temple.

On January 2, the Kerala government aided by its state police force had deliberately allowed two women belonging to Communist party to enter the shrine and violate the age-old customs practised at the Sabarimala shrine. The desperate act of Kerala government to defame Hindus was met with massive anger and protest across the country.

The left-wing goons aided by the Kerala government have begun to inflict serious violence on Hindu devotees and the BJP cadre. A country-made bomb was hurled on Saturday at BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP V Muraleedharan’s ancestral house at Vadiyil Peedikia near Thalassery and an RSS office in Kannur was set ablaze by unknown assailants. Chandran Unnithaan, an Ayappa devotee and member of Sabarimala Karma Samithi had died after stone pelting by CPIM workers.

The Kerala government led by Pinarayi Vijayan has been facing massive protests after it deliberately allowed politically motivated ‘activists’ to enter the shrine and violate age-old customs. Earlier, lakhs of devotees, especially women, lit lamps and stood on roads and highways in a peaceful protest, covering a distance of 795 km on 26 December to show their solidarity with Hindu devotees who are fighting for the preservation of age-old Hindu customs.
