Wanaparthy: Intensifying their protest against the recent Supreme Court directive to allow women of all age groups to visit Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala against the long-followed tradition of not allowing the women of menstrual age, the Akhila Bharata Ayyappa Deeksha Samithi, while celebrating Sankranti, took up a unique protest by drawing rangolies in front of all the households and writing the slogan ‘Save Sabarimala’ alongside the Rangolies.
The women folk, particularly from Pebbair, took active part in the Sankrathi Rangoli campaigning to take up the cause of protecting the long-followed Hindu tradition. While speaking on the occasion, the women groups said that every religion has its own customs and tradition.
In Sabarimala, it is a sin to allow women under menstrual age to enter the temple. However, the Supreme Court had not considered the sentiments of the Hindu devotees and had allowed all age women groups to enter the temple. Because of which some of the Ayyappa devotees are protesting and want the SC to take back its verdict to protect the sacred tradition.
“Women groups in Pebbair have expressed their solidarity and took up a unique campaigning of Save Shabarimala through their Sankranti Rangolies,” said a spokesperson of Akhila Bharata Ayyappa Deeksha Samithi. The Samithi members said that they would continue to express their protest against the SC verdict in various forms until the it takes back its verdict and protect the Hindu traditions that are followed since centuries.
