Widespread violence and protests had gripped the state yesterday after thousands of people stormed into streets protesting against the communist government’s repeated attacks against their faith. It is notable here that the Hindu devotees of the temple have been peacefully protesting against the Supreme Court’s decision and the Kerala government’s brutal attempts to interfere in the traditional rituals of the Sabarimala shrine. But the Wednesday’s incident of enforcing the entry of two woman activists inside the temple has stirred widespread outrage in the state.
