Women coming to Sabarimala temple should be ripped in half, says BJP supporter and actor Kollam Thulasi

New Delhi, News24 Bureau, Oct 13:  In what can be one of the weirdest episodes in the reaction after the Supreme Court allowed entry of women of all age groups inside the Sabarmati temple. South Indian actor Kollam Thulasi on Friday said women coming to Sabarimala temple should be ripped in half, according to reports.According to ANI, Thulasi, who was addressing a gathering in Kerala's Kollam city, added: "One half should be sent to Delhi. The other half should be thrown to Chief Minister's Office in Thiruvananthapuram."Earlier Friday, members of the Opposition Congress and BJP in Kerala staged demonstrations to express solidarity with Ayyappa devotees even as the CPI, the key partner in the CPI-M led Left Democratic Front, said there was an attempt to "politicise" the Supreme Court order on Sabarimala, PTI reported.The Supreme Court on 28 September ruled that women will be allowed entry into Lord Ayyappa's Sabarimala temple in Kerala. The apex court allowed women access to the iconic temple, with the constitutional bench headed by former CJI Dipak Misra saying that rules put in place by the temple administration violated articles 14 and 25 of the Constitution.Following the apex court's verdict, the Pinarayi Vijayan-led state government, the board, and several right-wing activists said they would not file review petitions against the order.
