Clashes At Sabarimala Over Woman's Entry

Protests erupted in Sabarimala temple in Kerala’s Pathanamthitta on Tuesday after a woman reached near the 18 holy steps of the hilltop shrine and agitators heckled her over her age

Protests and minor clashes were reported from the famous Sabarimala Temple in Kerala on Tuesday in which some media persons were injured.

According to reports, a 52-year-old woman was injured after protesting devotees targetted her on Tuesday morning. "The injured woman has been admitted to the hospital and is under doctors surveillance," said officials.

A photo-journalist was also injured after protesting devotees targeted media persons at the Sabarimala temple this morning.

The ruckus purportedly erupted after reports emerged of a woman devotee attempting to enter the temple. Hundreds of devotees assembled at the inner courtyard or Sannidhanam in order to agitate against the alleged entry of the woman, PTI reported.

The woman, identified as Lalitha, from Thrissur later offered prayers at the temple under police protection. 

The Sabarimala shrine opened on Monday for the second time in three weeks for a two-day special puja amid unprecedented security over the fear of protests by those opposing the Supreme Court's order allowing women of all age groups into the temple.

The doors of the temple will be opened again on Tuesday for the "Sree Chitira Atta Thirunal" puja to mark the birth anniversary of the last king of the princely state of Travancore Chithira Thirunal Balarama Varma.

Meanwhile, the Kerala High Court has said that pilgrims should not be harassed under the guise of implementing the Supreme Court judgment.

"You can't cause hardships to pilgrims," the court said while hearing a petition seeking its direction to the government not to interfere with the day-to-day affairs of the shrine

No woman in the age group of 10-50 years has been able to visit Sabarimala temple since the top court's order on September 28.
