Sabarimala: Devotees block entry of women aged between 10 and 50 into temple
A day after the members of a Tamil Nadu based organisation was prevented by the Ayyappa devotees from their attempt to enter the famous hill temple of South India Sabarimala, two other women have attempted to succeed in what their predecessors failed to accomplish.
Both have been blocked by the devotees, before they have reached the hill top, during their journey from the foot of the holy hill to the top.
The manner in which the devotees have reacted to the women’s walk towards the top of the temple has left the law enforcers with no option but to bring these two back to the base camp of the temple.
It is learned that one of the women has fainted during the standoff between the police backed women and the devotees. According to a report, the fainted woman has been taken to the hospital.
Meanwhile, the representatives of the organisation, which last day attempted to take their members into the hill temple, where the entry of women aged between 10 and 50 is banned traditionally, and where the entry of women of all ages is permitted legally, has faced serious protest in Trivandrum today, where they reached last day to meet the Chief Minister.
