Sabarimala Row: Kerala Govt Convenes All-Party Meeting Tomorrow

November 14, 2018

The temple had witnessed a string of protests from devotees when it opened for monthly pujas in October and two days early this month.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM — The Kerala government on Tuesday convened an all-party meeting on 15 November to discuss various issues relating to the Lord Ayyappa temple at Sabarimala, which witnessed widespread protests following the Supreme Court decision to permit entry of women of all ages into the shrine.

The decision to call the meeting comes on a day when the apex court refused to stay its 28 September verdict, lifting the centuries-old ban on girls and women in the 10-50 age group from entering the shrine and decided to hear a batch of review petitions in open court on 22 January.

The two-month long annual 'Mandala Makkaravillakku' season will start on 17 November and the meeting will also take stock of the arrangements made for devotees.
