Sabarimala: Kerala govt says it will help menstruating women enter temple after asking Modi govt to protect tradition

After heaping atrocities on Sabarimala devotees, communists in Kerala had in a U-turn in June 2019 asked the centre for the law to protect Sabarimala traditions.

The communist government in Kerala after taking a U-turn in the past on the Sabarimala temple issue, has now once again reiterated that his government’s policy is to implement the Supreme Court’s order, which allows women of all age group to enter the temple, thereby desecrating the Sabarimala temple tradition.

After heaping atrocities on Sabarimala devotees, communists in Kerala had in a U-turn in June 2019 asked the centre for the law to protect Sabarimala traditions. However, now again going back to its previous deportment has said that it will support the SC September 2018 verdict allowing the woman of menstruating age to enter the Ayappa temple.

According to a New18 report, the Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Monday said that it will not possible to bring a law against the apex court judgement.

With almost two weeks to go for the longest yearly pilgrimage season at Sabarimala to commence, Vijayan said that the state cannot bring a law against the SC judgement and is based on “fundamental rights unlike Jallikattu”, adding that all measures will be taken to ensure safe and peaceful conditions for all devotees.

A few days ago, while addressing the media, the Kerala CM had clarified that his LDF government would put in all efforts to execute the order and facilitate “devotees visiting the temple” and also would not file review petition over the verdict and file its opinion if the apex court demands it while hearing the petition.

The CPM had in 2018 welcomed the controversial Supreme Court verdict. Massive protests and demonstrations had ensued following the Supreme Court September 2018 verdict which dismissed the age-old ban on the entry of women of menstrual age (10-50 years) in the Sabarimala temple, one of the most revered and sacred shrines in Kerala.  Protestors had thronged the Sabarimala temple vowing to preserve the temple traditions of barring women’s entry.

The Left was under severe criticism from the opposition for mishandling the deteriorating situation and failing to maintain law and order in the state as violence broke out in many regions.

Kerala administration, led by CPI(M) had willingly aided the entry of two women in the Sabarimala temple, thereby desecrating its centuries-old customs. It had even attempted several times to help non-Hindus and activists in entering the temple, sometimes even escorting them. Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan and the Communist government were viewed by the people as complicit in violating the long-held traditions of the Sabarimala temple. Even the Kerala high court had slammed Pinarayi Vijayan-led communist government in Kerala for using brute force to evict temple devotees from Sabarimala shrine.

This year’s “Mandalam- Makaravilakku” season will begin on November 16.
