LONDON Dec 10: The signature campaign started by a Vinod K Nair to petition to President of India and 6 others is reaching 75,000. The campaign said:
Crores of people of Hindu faith, especially devotees of Lord Sabarimala Ayyappa are unhappy in the unfortunate judgement pronounced on 28th September, 2018, by the Five-member Constitution Bench of Hon’ble Supreme Court “Restrictions in the entry of women under the age group of 10 to 50 years in Sabarimala”.
At the same time, we feel happy and respect the single lady judge in the Bench, Hon. Justice Indu Malhothra, who, understanding the sanctity of Sabarimala, expressed and recorded a different view in the judgement, touching the hearts of crores of devotees of Lord Ayyappa.
The judgement is unfortunate for various reasons: the Temple has been described as a Public Place; the Diety/Murthy, which has been worshipped as a Living God till now, has been considered as a mere non-living matter; further the Diety/Murthy can’t be considered as an individual and has no Fundamental Rights under the Indian Constitution,… etc..
Because of these various reasons, crores of people, irrespective of cast, creed, religion, and gender, have expressed Strong Protest not only in Kerala, but also throughout the country.
An atmosphere of Conflict and Separatism has emerged, in place of peace and harmony, by the support of a minute minority of people, who have nothing to do with the Sabarimala Temple.
While respecting the Judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, we wish to mention the judgement as Highly Unfortunate.
For reconsidering the judgement , We request you to appoint a special commission to study this sensitive matter in detail.
Kindly intervene in this sensitive issue to protect rituals and customs, Please save Sabarimala ritual.
Your early action in this matter will be highly appreciable
May Lord Ayyappa bless you
