Sabarimala Temple row: Why these disruptive fascists are trying to kill the faith?
The appalling disruption against the faith, tradition, and sentiments of the masses at Sabarimala by the so-called 'feminists and activists, fighting for the empowerment of women,' has left Hindus, who always have tremendous faith in the Supreme Court judgment, flabbergasted.

Women journalists, Communists, Christians, crypto-Christians, Muslims, fake Dalits etc have been trying to violate the holiness of Lord Ayappa — with unparalleled shamelessness, and shamelessly, the aggression was hastily blamed to 'civilised' or 'educated' elements of the upper-caste privileged leaders of so-called Hindutva forces opposing women's entry in the temple. 

These disruptive elements have been using this judgement to defame Hindus and upper caste Hindus. There is hardly any Hindu woman who wants to have a darshan of Lord Ayappa. These anti-Hindu activists have planted these fake devotees and trying to get force entry in the temple. It appears that the media have hid these female pilgrims, thankfully their real identity, religion and work yet, even then these thugs, failed to enter the temple in the name of the freedom, given by the Supreme Court of the country granted to women. 

In the meanwhile, the protestors and their supporters remained peaceful and with very valid arguments defending and justifying their protest and agitation. The 'tradition' that this flood of humanity seeks to defend — that devotee should not see women — is one of the 64, customs that were clearly followed in the country. The others in this list include the direction against using a stick or any outer object to clean one's teeth. Brahmin women were banned from wearing nose-pins, wearing clothes of colours other than white, and seeing any 'other' men. All these traditions are meant to purify the one's life on evils. It contains command-bringing equality in the society as well. 

All are equal in front of the Lord Ayappa. Most of these ideas remained unfazed and unchanged and could not be swept off in the high surge of social and community reform in modern and educated Kerala, but it appears that the idea that the view of a woman is a grave threat to the celibacy of Lord Ayappa seems to have had honour and safety to women in mind. 

In other words, this tradition seems to be broadly accepted by the 'faithful' Hindus as having survived the test of time, to which Hindu tradition was put to by 20th-century modernity in Kerala. It is perhaps worth thinking why this tradition and faith has been surviving. In the late 18th and 19th century, Malayali social life was undergoing radical changes. This process respected 'traditions.' Even missionaries failed to shake this aspect of tradition. Even reforms of the Victorian-era preserved this tradition. What we witness is a strengthening of the Brahmin-Sudra 'social harmony' in which the ideals of these communities that had conceded through Victorian reforms were set up as our matchless modernity. The inherent respect of the female body — its divine upower to inflame energy and strength in men — was a key Hindu and belief, as also the mild suggestion that it must be decently covered. Even so-called anti-brahminical reformers as well as Sree Narayana Guru supported this move. This united all the Hindus, irrespective of caste and region.

These possibilities continued largely unknown earlier, and the Brahmin-Nair-SC-ST consensus has emerged in the society. The dominant sweep of leftist anti-Hindu politics in Kerala failed to change this new Hindu engineering. Recent decades have, conversely, seen Hindus united and vocal, firm groups, raising unbending challenges to this 'fake equality and secularism contract'. Slowly and clearly, the Victorian tangible in the nitty-gritty of this 'anti-Hindu' has been strongly rebuffed through these mass, determined struggles, both in India and Kerala.

The Supreme Court's fresh judgments striking down Section 377 and the adultery law show how far we are confused; so does the drama of MeToo movement, which ruptures over the country and this state and set nation laughing. No wonder, those fake reformists who had projected the so-called rot of Brahminism under Victorian morality now exposed and wriggle in intense discomfort and resort anti-Hindu rumour mongering and hate campaign. The Left shaped a viciously violent political culture in Kerala. Armed cadres habitually imposed party commands by terrorizing and killing citizens.

What has become unambiguously clear is that there is a big section of Malayalis who are actively participating in this protest and agitation. Clearly, the ruling CPM stand to lose, having forgotten how to face a non-violent, Gandhian struggle around this issue while stridently opposing the tradition and sentiments of the masses. Kerala CM is a trying to consolidate the grip of the Left favourable to the CPM, and all his calculations went wrong and he has played his cards strangely shaky. Again, the keenness of the Left to insult the fundamentals of Hindus social life is exposed. The Kerala CM spews venom by falsely igniting the caste system. Reality is this that the upper castes are silent with all the wrong done to them. Yet one still fears how long this consolidation will survive. 

The year 2018 seems to be an extraordinary one for Kerala: They have been witness two chances to re-write themselves as a society. The first was the huge floods of August 2018, which they faced and survived through amazing acts of mutual help, only to see the new wisdom of togetherness in this protest and agitation. O Lord Ayappa! Forgive them; as they do not know, what they are doing. They are ignorant and sinners.
