There is a political assault in the state about the entry of women in the temple of Lord Ayyappa located in Sabarimala, Kerala. On the one hand , 3,178 people have been arrested so far in the incidents of violence in different parts of the state , on the other hand BJP on the other hand alleged that the violence in Kerala was sponsored by the government. A total of 1,286 cases have been registered against 37,979 people in the state. During the violence, protesters also targeted police and media.
BJP on Saturday alleged that violence surrounding the Sabarimala temple in Kerala incited the LDF government of the state. BJP said that instead of tackling the case sensitively, the state government made the situation worse, resulting in many devotees being injured and many people were killed. The saffron party also said that the Sabarimala issue is about Hindus, not about the ruling party. The BJP said, ‘All these CPM goons have done with full support and support of the state government. There is a history of CPM to incite violence against RSS-BJP workers. But today they are not spared the devotees. ‘
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said, “The state government is using the workers of DYFI, SDPI. This is all state-sponsored violence. A worshiper was killed two days ago and a bomb was thrown at the house of an MP of our MP. ‘ He said that the nature of display in the Sabarimala temple was not political, but peaceful performances were being maintained to keep the tradition of the temple. Rao said, “This is a matter of pilgrims, not the issue of BJP. This is an issue related to Hindu society. ‘
Let me tell you that last year the Supreme Court allowed the entry of women of all age groups in Sabarimala temple. However, after this decision, a woman of ‘restricted’ age was unable to visit Ayyappa in the temple so far. On Wednesday Kanakadurga and Bindh claimed that they were successful in seeing Ayyappa. After this news, tremendous protests were started in the state.
