Recently, Union Minister Smriti Irani gave a controversial statement regarding the Sabarimala temple verdict, since then the opposition had launched attack on the BJP. Now the Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah has given a statement on the issue which has again sparked a controversy.
Addressing the gathering after inaugurating the Bharatiya Janata Party’s office in Kannur today, Amit Shah said that today there is a lot of turmoil between the religious sentiments and the atrocities of the state government. More than 2000 people of Bharatiya Janata Party, RSS and other Hindu organizations have been arrested.
He said that we are standing firmly with the devotees, and the Left Government knows this very well.
It may be noted that in September, the Supreme Court had given verdict on the entry of women from 10 to 50 years in Sabarimala temple and had said that they should not be stopped from entering the temple premises. On the other side the devotees of Lord Ayyappa objected to this decision and in Kerala demonstrations were staged at many places.
Since the verdict, the Bharatiya Janata Party was silent, but as soon as the Assembly elections are announced in five states, the Bharatiya Janata Party leaders have started speaking against the verdict of Supreme Court on Sabarimala Temple.
A few days ago, opposing the Supreme Court verdict on Sabarimala Temple, Union Minister Smriti Irani had said that you can go to your friend’s house with a blood-stained sanitary pad, if no then how can you enter God’s house in such condition?
