Joining voices with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), two Hindu organisations, namely Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha and Delhi Sant Mahamandal on Saturday denounced the alleged action of the Kerala Police on the devotees of Sabarimala temple.
They also alleged that the real face of the CPI-M has been exposed.
“The way sanctity, religious belief, and the serenity of Sabarimala have been attacked shows the real face of CPI-M,” the two organisations said in a joint statement.
On Friday, the VHP had also condemned the action of the Kerala Police over the devotees.
Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha and Delhi Sant Mahamandal alleged that the Kerala Police lathi-charged the devotees.
“However, despite the brute force of administration, Kerala government could not force the Hindu devotees to submit. This is a victory of faith and devotion,” they said.
The organisations also thanked the devotees saying “they were trying to save the tradition of Sabarimala.”
“The role of the CPI-M has always remained under question on the issue of saving the rights of women,” said the two outfits attacking the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M).
They pointed out that the Hindu community has never been anti-women.
“But there has been a tradition of temples and one has to respect that. And due to these different traditions, India has unity in diversity,” they said.
