Yesterday, 4 BJP workers were brutally injured in the attacks after a clash ensued in Thrissur when the BJP workers were trying to ensure the day-long bandh called by Hindu outfits in the state.
The Sabarimala Karma Samithi had called for a day-long bandh yesterday to protest against the desecration of the Sabarimala temple after the communist government had escorted two women CPI-ML activists of the restricted age group inside the temple. As protests spread in the state after the incident, many Hindu outfits in the state had called for a dawn-to-dusk bandh and the BJP had extended support.
In Thrissur, as per reports, a clashed had ensued between BJP workers supporting the bandh and SDPI activists opposing them. Four BJP workers were reportedly stabbed by SDPI men in the clash.

In another incident, a 55-year old man died yesterday after being attacked by communist workers who pelted stones at him near their party office in Pandalam.
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.
