The Malayali actor Kollam Thulasi made an inappropriate statement reflecting his visions and kind of respect he holds for the females. He said that women entering the premises of Sabarimala temple should be “torn into two pieces”.
The reel-life actor forgot humanism and said that “Women coming to Sabarimala temple should be ripped into a half,” and continued that one half should be sent to Delhi while the other half should be thrown towards Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s house.
The actor was addressing the gathering present at an event in Kollam. He even asked the people to chant the mantras of Lord Ayyappa loudly so that it could “rupture the eardrum of Vijayan” and “Also, the idiots in the Supreme Court should hear the chanting.”
The Sabarimala case emerged as a controversy when a four-one majority verdict last month of Supreme court smashed the traditional ban on the entry of women in the temple premises.
The decision saw different shades of the society as the Kerala government and the Travancore Devaswom Board, which run the shrine welcomed the decision. They even assured to provide full assistance and comfort to women pilgrims. The state government even cleared that it would not go for the review of the decision.
However, many people saw the verdict as against the religion and formed protests and march.
In fact, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi shared on Tuesday that four review petitions had been filed against the Sabarimala judgement but the apex court denied for any urgent hearing and said “It will be listed in due course,”
The LDF blamed that the ongoing protests and marches were the actions executed to “destabilise’ the government.
The Lord Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala has prohibited the entry of women belonging to menstruation age in the temple. The temple’s rules were followed across the country, making a belief that menstruating women are “impure”.But few petitions were filed challenging the ban and said that women could not be barred from their constitutional right to worship.
