Ancient Tribal Temple Demolished in Kerala

By HK via Janmabhumi published on June 1, 2017

Pathanapuram: An ancient tribal temple, comprising of stone lamps, Shivalingas and compound wall, venerated by Adivasis and their family members since ages has been dismantled completely by state revenue department. The move comes after a fabricated petition was submitted to the Collector about the Adivasis having encroached into the land.
Situated in Kurottumala, Piravanthoor grama panchayat in Pathanapuram, the temple was part of an eighty five cent plot. Having executed the blasphemous deed, armed with bulldozers and heavy metal tools, officers of the revenue department proceeded to have an altercation with the Adivasis who had gathered in protest.
The Hindu Aikya Vedi and BJP have alleged that primitive forms of Adivasi worship which has been going on in Madan Kavu, since several years, is nothing but a politically motivated move. A large contingent of police personnel have been stationed in the area to contain any untoward incident that might occur.

    Gods own country has been converted to a Jihadi ISIS land & the anti-national commies & Congis are supporting them. Idiotic Hindus have allowed this to happen by sleeping & having a no-care attitude.Jihadi’s threatened Judges and raised obscene slogans against them. Targeting judges personally & questioning the verdict by violent protests are clear signposts to what is in store for Keralites in years to come.

    After years of fighting armed jihadi terrorists with bullets and brickbats, security agencies in Jammu and Kashmir and Kerala are now facing a new enemy – ‘bedroom jihadis’ who manipulate social media from the comfort of their homes to spread rumors and influence youths.
    It’s a new battleground and a new battle say senior officers. Far removed from conventional weaponry and the conventional fighting zones of the warren of narrow streets and forests, these new age jihadis use computers and smartphones to wage war from just about anywhere – in Kashmir orKerala , safe inside their homes or out on the streets, from a nearby cafe, Calicut Medical college or even just a convenient roadside.
    An immediate worry for security agencies is the Amarnath Yatra that starts June 29. Armed with access to platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter, there are fears that the new band of jihadis could instigate communal riots in the Valley ahead of the 40-day pilgrimage to the high altitude shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva.
    “It is a virtual battleground where a bloody war is fought, but with words. However, this has an impact on the young minds,” said a senior police officer.

    Many officers felt that false rumours could be floated in Jammu in the coming days, leaving authorities with little time to react.”Anyone, while sitting on his bed or sofa, can plant this news in one of the thousand chat groups and the entire state can plunge into communal divide,” said a police officer.
