New Delhi: Bangladeshi author and women rights campaigner Taslima Nasreen has questioned lady activists who are “eager to enter” the Sabarimala temple in Kerala. The exiled creator said in a message on Twitter that such activists must as an alternative focus on problems inclusive of sexual abuse and rape.

“I do no longer apprehend why girls activists are so eager to go into Sabarimala. Better they ought to enter the villages in which women be afflicted by home violence, rape, sexual abuse, hate, in which ladies don’t have any access to training, heath-care, and no freedom to take a activity or get equal pay,” she tweeted on Friday.

Nasreen’s comments come amid escalating tensions in and around the Sabarimala shrine, which is devoted to Lord Ayyappa. Right to wish activist Trupti Desai, who has declared her goal to go into the temple along side different girls – against the needs of many devotees who firmly observe the custom of barring ladies of menstrual age from coming into the shrine – was blocked at Kochi airport after she landed there on Friday morning.

The protesters are in opposition to the entry of women and women among the age of 10 and 50 from coming into the temple although the Supreme Court has removed such regulations in its ancient September judgment.

The Sabarimala temple is predicted to open on Friday nighttime for the 0.33 time after the September 28 Supreme Court verdict. So far no ladies inside the 10 to 50 age group has been capable of input the shrine amid non-stop protests.

Ever since the apex court announced its verdict, the problem has snowballed into a chief political controversy, with the Pinarayi Vijayan authorities at loggerheads with the sections of the Opposition.

But the debate isn’t merely political, and has triggered a massive debate in Kerala and beyond on whether such topics can be settled by way of a court ruling or talks among the state and devotees who feel very strongly approximately religious traditions.
