Amid protests in Kerala referring to the Sabarimala temple, where 2 woman have entered yesterday, a Lankan citizen, Sasikala has become the 3rd women to enter the premises.

Sasikala, who is in the menstruating age of 46, entered the temple today to offer darshan at the shrine of Lord Ayyappa, although the Supreme Court had ordered earlier in a 4-1 order that women of all age group can enter the temple.

Sasikala said that “I did not get darshan. They did not let me go... I have a medical certificate.”

She was carrying a medical certificate which was proving that her uterus was removed in an operation and hence, she had fulfilled the demand of the protesters as she wasn’t menstruating anymore. She further said, “They have a 48-day fasting rule; I have done the 48-day fast.”

News agency ANI tweeted “46-year-old Srilankan woman who came to Sabarimala Temple: I went up to the holy steps, but I was not allowed to go further. I had a medical certificate also.”

BJP legislator Meenakshi Lekhi has stated today that, “If there is one person who has converted it into a clash zone, it is Mr Vijayan (Kerala CM). Mahilaon ko 'hijra' banakar lekar jana raat ko 1 baje, agar woh bhakt mahila thi toh din mein aana chahiye tha, lekin raat ko yeh karwahi ki gayi.”

Sabarimala Karma Samithi activists along with BJP and RSS workers take out a march against the death of Karma Samithi activist Chandran allegedly during clashes with Police. CM had said his death was due to a heart attack.
