Over 1,300 cases were registered by the Kerala police in hartal-related violence all over the state, and over 3,187 people have been arrested so far.

The adverse hartal

The hartal on Thursday had been called to protest against the entry of two women in their forties, Bindu and Kanaka Durga. These two brave women had entered the Sabarimala temple early on Wednesday morning. The hartal was also to mark the death of Sabarimala Karma Samithi worker Chandran Unnithan, who died in a stone-pelting incident in Pandalam, which took place over the women’s temple entry issue.

Previously women had tried to enter the temple with Police protection but had failed to enter amidst protests.

Landmark SC Judgment

The Supreme Court on September 28, 2018 paved the way for the entry of women of all ages into the Ayyappa temple at Sabarimala in Kerala in a landmark judgment. The CJI said devotion cannot be subjected to discrimination and patriarchal notion cannot be allowed to trump equality in devotion. He said devotees of Lord Ayyappa do not constitute a separate denomination.

Watershed moment in history

Women coming together to break the Brahminical patriarchy is simply commendable. The women’s wall on the New Year day demonstrated the collective power of women in Kerala.

Human chain at Kerala

The wall is the longest known human wall. Over 35 lakh women stood shoulder-to-shoulder to form a 620 km long human chain across national highways in Kerala to uphold gender equality.
