  • Sabarimala temple opens for devotees Kerala Police ‘send back’ 10 women seeking to trek to shrine

She also said that women will visit the temple after November 20, and will not return without entering the temple. The minister hit out at women activists who plan to visit the temple during the Mandala-Makaravilakku season. The five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had, on November 14, in a 3:2 verdict chose to refer the issue to a larger bench to re-examine religious issues including those arising out of its 2018 verdict lifting a centuries-old ban on women of menstruating age visiting the hilltop shrine.

Pathanamthitta: The Kerala Police sent back ten young women who arrived at Pampa for having darshan at Sabarimala Temple.

AK Sudheer Namboodiri would take charge as the Sabarimala Melsanthi and MS Parameshwaran Namboodiri as Malikapuram Melsanthi. "The earlier situation was different, when there was a strong Supreme Court verdict allowing women of all ages to enter".

However, the police officers who verified the women' ages claimed the devotees chose to abandon the plan to trek uphill to Sannidhanam "on their own volition" and were not compelled to go back, The Hindu reported.

Law minister A.K. Balan also reiterated that the government will not facilitate the entry of women from the restricted age group at Sabarimala in the wake of the Supreme Court verdict. Women police constables have been deployed in the area. Leaders at different levels conducted house visits and it was found that lack of clarity on the government and party stance on the Sabarimala issue was one of the reasons that led to an erosion of its captive vote base. "Now, women are being stopped, so I think the government is working completely against women".

The state government will not allow them to proceed to Sabarimala for the moment as the matter has been referred to a larger bench of the Supreme Court.

The unprecented floods during August past year had also played havoc with the pilgrimage season with most of the facilties for the devotees being destroyed. Over 10,000 police personnel would be posted in phases in and around the Lord Ayyappa temple for security purposes during the pilgrim season.

A 3:2 verdict chose to keep pending the pleas seeking a review of its decision regarding the entry of women into the shrine, and said restrictions on women in religious places was not restricted to Sabarimala alone and was prevalent in other religions as well.

The devotees have to trek through hard paths in the forest as the vehicles can go only up to pamba.
