As the Sabarimala row has taken a toll in Kerala, the Pinarayi Vijayan government has submitted a data to the Supreme Court claiming that ‘51 women below the age of 50 have entered the temple.’
“In a note, submitted in SC by the Kerala government, it stated that 51 women between the age groups of 10 and 50 years entered Sabarimala Temple following SC verdict,” tweeted news agency ANI.
Earlier, two women who entered Sabarimala temple had received back lash from the protesters and have moved the apex court to get security cover, as she was attacked by her mother-in-law.
