PARAVUR: The All-Kerala Thantri Samajam has come out strongly against the statement of Devaswom Minister G Sudhakaran on the rights of thantris.

Thantri Samajam general secretary Vezhaparambu Krishnan Namboodiripad said on Thursday that the statement of the minister that thantris had no right to either permit or deny anybody from entering temples was untimely and unfortunate.

The minister made such a statement without knowing the facts. He should understand that the king of Travancore, prior to the Temple Entry Proclamation, had consulted the thantris on the issue and got their approval.
