Sabarimala protest turns violent

The right-wing activists marched to the minister’s house, protesting the state government’s decision to implement the Supreme Court order, permitting women of all age groups into the Lord Ayyappa shrine at Sabarimala, and tried to break the barricades put up by police.

The agitators squatted on the road and held a protest meeting against the Left government’s decision to implement the Supreme Court order, permitting women of all age groups into the Lord Ayyappa shrine at Sabarimala.

A group of devotees continued their protest in front of the Secretariat here, demanding that the LDF government file a review petition against the apex court order.

The ruling CPI(M)-headed Left Democratic Front held a meeting here to chalk out the strategy to counter the alleged false propaganda against the government unleashed by the BJP and Congress on the Sabarimala issue.

Soon after the Supreme Court lifted the ban on the entry of women in the age group of 10-50 in Sabarimala, the opposition Congress and BJP and various Hindu organisations have launched protests, demanding that the state government file a review petition against the top court order.
