Marxist sponsored untouchability in Kerala

via HK published on June 15, 2015

Thiruvananthapuram: The Bharatiya Janata Party has condemned the Marxist facade of denigrating members of the lower rung of society by keeping them away from temple austerities. Sources have reported that the temple, with Marxist members in its board, has been ostracizing members of the lower rung of society with regard to various temple austerities and functions.

Condemning the matter President of BJP’S state unit V Muraleedharan said that the incident of “ostracizing members of Pulaya community in Pambadi Aalinkeezhil Temple in Azheekodu, Kannur was indeed deplorable.”

Seeking a response on the matter from Marxist leadership, Muraleedharan said that the BJP’s stand was that “the temple should be open for devotees, irrespective of divisive aspects like speculations on caste and creed. The Bharatiya Janata Party does not agree with segregating or ostracizing people on the basis of caste. A strong protest movement has garnered strength, with regard to the matter,” he said.

An expose by Janam TV showed how the temple function of “thiruvaayudham ezhunnallathu” deliberately avoided homes of devotees hailing from Pulaya community. However, inspite of protests having poured in from various factions and a directive issued by the Collector, Marxists heading the temple board refused to make changes to the existing observances. The matter was voiced by Kerala State Scheduled Castes Forum, Rashtreeya Swayamsevak Sangh and Hindu Aikya Vedi.

However, with the Collector issuing orders, temple board authorities made it appear that the temple procession would enter only the homes of those members whose castes belonged to temple administrative board.

Members of Marxist clan continue to adorn the cold divisive attitude they had previously donned.
