Kottayam: Nair Service Society (NSS) is allegedly facing threats for its stand against the entry of women of menstruating age in Sabarimala temple in Kerala. Kottayam NSS office was attacked. Fingers point to CPI(M) activists for this incident. The office at Kiliroor in Kottayam was vandalised.

NSS members earlier said that they were facing threats from the state government leaders and many Left ministers had issued statements against the organisation. CPI(M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, on Sunda, had asked the NSS members to change their stand on the Sabarimala issue. 

Balakrishnan also spoke about the BJP national president Amit Shah's statement that the government will fall if they implement the Supreme Court verdict. The state secretary of CPI(M) said that the state government is not at the mercy of the BJP. He also stated that he hopes that the NSS would not fall into the "trap laid by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)" on the Sabarimala issue.

He pointed out that if the NSS decided to join the RSS, then the latter will swallow this organisation completely. Balakrishnan then said Vellappally Natesan, leader of Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam knew about this, and thus he distanced himself from the issue.

NSS was one of the first organisations that approached the Supreme Court with its review petition.
