Thiruvananthapuram: The Ayyappa devotees have taken a new challenge in Kerala to protect Sabarimala. They have decided to vote for the party that will openly support Sabarimala and preserve the Ayyappa shrine.
The Ayyappa devotees also insist that in the election manifesto, it should be clearly written that the party favours and will protect Sabarimala temple.
The Ayyappa devotees openly posted posters on their walls, indicating that they will only vote for the leader, who will openly support Sabarimala and save the tradition.
The verdict of the apex court on September 28 last year allowing the entry of women of all age groups into the famous shrine had made Sabarimala a battlefield. Women of all ages should be allowed in Kerala's renowned Sabarimala temple, the Supreme Court ordered, ending the age-old ban.
