Protests in Sabarimala not acceptable: High Court

Protests in Sabarimala not acceptable: High Court

The Kerala high court on weekday turned down a bail plea by a person arrested last month, saying protests against the entry of ladies to the Sabarimala temple were unacceptable.
 
"The protests at Sabarimala don't seem to be acceptable because it is against the decision of the Supreme Court," a high court bench said, rejecting the request for bail by Kochi resident Govind Madhusudhan.
 
"If the bail application is taken into account, it'll send wrong signals and similar incidents will recur once more," the court aforesaid.
 
Madhusudhan was arrested at the temple city throughout protests against the entry of women within theage bracket of ten to fifty, effectively gap up the shrine to all or any women.
 
The police have inactive over 3,500 folks and registered near to 540 cases. Around 100 folks are still in judicial custody.
 
The protesters last month prevented twelve girls from coming into the temple. Similar protests were seen once the temple opened for each day on November 5 when 3 women were forced to return without giving prayers.
