Sabarimala temple row: Case against 4 RSS workers for hurling bombs at police station
Violent protests broke out across Kerala last week after two women of menstruating age-Bindu and Kanakadurga- climbed the Sabarimala Temple. Protesters blocked highways and forced closure of shops and markets located in various parts the region.
Several political quarters, including BJP, held a protest march in various parts of the state against the entry of women into the hilltop shrine.
On September 28, 2018, the Supreme Court had lifted the ban on entry of women between 10 to 50 years into the Lord Ayyappa shrine.
