@BDUTT State is the biggest proselytizer misinterpreting 'Article 26' to every religious minorities who says 'I'm not a Hindu' & only Hindu educational Institutions r under state control misusing Article 15(5), 28(1) & 30(1). Borrowed anglo juris prudence of Thomas Babington Macaulay..

I got this complete list with names, phone numbers and addresses of 51 women aged 10-50 years who, #Kerala govt claims, entered #Sabarimala temple Friday afternoon. Two points on this: a) Why is the state's @cpimspeak govt leaking such details to the local media?... 1/n
2/n: Shouldn't the government be held responsible for such an act? Whether these women are 10-50 yrs old or actually even visited the temple is still a secondary issue. Leaking such lists puts them/ their everyday lives in danger.
3/n: I randomly called 2 phone numbers on the #Sabarimala women list leaked by #Kerala govt. In both the cases the individuals claimed they were over 50 years. In one case, 59 yrs and 50+yrs in the other - when both of them were listed in 40-50 yr age group. #electionsarecoming

1/ Le 1er janvier, des millions de femmes du Kerala ont formé un “Mur des femmes” pour l’accès des femmes à un temple hindou. Un thread sur ce que j’ai appris sur #Sabarimala
2/ Je ne connaissais pas grand chose au dossier, mais travaillant sur #genre et #religion, ça m’intéressait, surtout que certain.e.s y ont vu des parallèles possibles avec l’accès des femmes au Mur de Jérusalem…
3/ ... comme la violence physique contre les femmes qui veulent prier dans un espace religieux très contrôlé, ou le recours à l’arbitrage de la Cour suprême

At the turn of this year, @jsaideepak addressed a packed hall of 500 in Mumbai.
It'll go down as a most passionate & erudite talk in a long time by a young man of 33
It was 2 hrs long & extempore
Till you get to watch it, savour some clips in this thread
@jsaideepak: How India is the mothership of culture for the East and why we must not fail in our mission to remain that way
@jsaideepak: How our ancestors struggled to preserve for us our faith & heritage and how we would fail them if we do not answer the call to duty that faces us now. He refers most movingly to Dr Meenakshi Jain's book 'Flight of Deities'

#Sabarimala:Restore it's #Tamil Hindu legacy & #ReclaimTemple 4m communists !
Does #Kerala prefer a secular legacy with fake WestAsian links 4 its Sabarimala shrine or a traditional affinity with an ancient TamilHIndu Heritage,holds the key to the issue!…

What happens when women defy patriarchy: Violent protests have paralysed southern Indian state of #Kerala after 2 women made history by entering a prominent Hindu temple.
One person was killed in clashes. Schools are closed & public transport suspended.…
The #Sabarimala temple was historically closed to women of "menstruating age" - defined as between 10 and 50.
The Supreme Court revoked the ban in September. On Wednesday, Bindu Ammini, 40, and Kanaka Durga, 39, entered the shrine around dawn and became the first women to do so.
The day before the two women made history by entering #Sabarimala temple, #Kerala had a historic protest for gender equality and against right-wing groups who oppose the Supreme Court’s lifting of the ban on women

As a writer of history, I have been wondering whether it is possible at all to make an objective, non-partisan assessment of what has (and is) taking place at #Sabarimala, one of Hinduism's most sacred shrines? Let us try. To begin with, let us accept that in a world where, after
many centuries, the voices of women are being heard, a shrine that bars women of menstruating age, seems dysfunctional to all of us. The question arises, how can this even be an issue today - after all these years of battling for liberty? This is a vital and important question
that should never be disregarded or disrespected. It is one of the most important questions of our time. In a country where, worryingly, women's participation in the workforce is falling with growing prosperity (one would assume it ought to be the reverse), this is a critical

Following #WomenWallKerala protest & entry by 2 women into #Sabarimala Hindu temple for 1st time since #Indian Supreme Court lifted ban on women of “menstruating age” I’m writing about time I prayed while menstruating (during Amina Wadud’s historic mixed gender prayer NYC 2005)
Writing about it in chapter on Power in my new book. I am not interested in “Who gave you permission?” I gave myself permission. I took it. Amina Wadud leading mixed-gender Friday prayer was revolutionary and I decided to pray behind her without a headscarf and on my period.
Menstrution remains a taboo and a source of at times deadly consequences of patriarchal notions that it makes us “impure.” I am not “impure.” I am just as I’m supposed to be. I am not interested in arguing with anyone about this. I own my body and I gave myself this permission.

So, 2 women..came through the staff door.. & hung around for 2 minutes.

And this scares organized religion so much that Sabarimala has to saved !?
From the start, #SabarimalaTemple has been an episode of out & out war on women. There is no other way to look at this.

Women shouldnt have to sneak into temples at 3 am or wear helmets to pray to God.
This iconic photo of being escorted by police to a desegregated schools comes to mind every time I see police trying to escort women into Sabarimala. And failing.

Shame on #Sabarimala Devaswom board.

The rightful keepers of the #Sabarimala temple, Malayarayas, getting ready to travel and join #VanithaMathil. It's from them that the erstwhile royal family and thanthri family snatched the rights for the temple, and they will take it back.

#Hindu memories must’ve faded,
Christian aspiration to convert Hindus haven’t!
British supported Abdul Aziz Dahalvi, Ahmed Barelvi, his army of 80,000 wahabis in 1821 to get rid of Sikhs!

Supported Syed Ahmed Khan in creating the jihadi Aligarh Muslim University,Aligarh in 1875!
For your information #Hindus
Feb 1540, Papal Bull/ Government of Church Militant,promulgated by Pope Paul III established official institution of ‘Society of Jesus’

SPIRITUAL CONQUEST & haven’t deterred from their path ever since!
#WakeUpHindus , do you know what the Sikhs did to the wahabi who was supported by evangelists to get rid of them?
The Sikhs beheaded Barelvi in the Battle of Balakot in 1831!

Being a member of @People4Dharma and an active volunteer on ground for Pandalam nama japam procession which was organized on Oct 2, I can say that the role of BJP in supporting the devotees on the event conducted immediately aft the verdict was a big fat zero.
Only certain local congress leaders showed their solidarity with the devotees during that event while there were rumors throughout the day of the event that BJP and RSS had ordered their cadre to stay away from the procession as they were favor of the verdict
Only after witnessing the huge success of the Pandalam nama japam procession which gave rise to many similar peaceful processions across the state, BJP entered the fray to cash in on the political mileage of the issue.

While @vijayanpinarayi the loyal Vatican agent is hell bent on insulting #LordAyyappa & destroying His Naishitka bramachariyam by allowing women (menstruating age) the
protests against this attack on #SanatanaDharmam is unfortunately confined to Kerala alone ! #Sabarimalatemple
Our strength-divided by languages, rituals,food habits bt United by common belief in #SanatanaDharma!
Unfortunately Hindus lost these values due to successive invasions, colonial rule & thiruttu #Dravidam
resulting in GOD's becoming region specific..North/south!

The Irish Origins of “religious denomination” in Article 26 – Legal Notes by Arvind Datar…
The present article gives an interesting legislative history and does not deal with the merits of Sabarimala judgment as it is now pending before the Supreme Court for review. #Sabarimala
Article 26 of the Indian Constitution is derived from Article 44 of the Irish Constitution, 1937.  Article 44, in turn, was based on Article 114 of the Constitution of Poland, 1921.

Happy Birthday Racist AntiSemite @jack . Why "brahmanical" and not just "patriarchy"? Venomous hate against brahmins is relic of 19th century white christian colonizer antisemitism applied to India. You just used your privilege to support a plague of violence you dont even see.
@jack AntiBrahmin stereotypes and bigotry from now junked California history textbooks

@rajeshpadmar @Equateall Think of why Central govt "attorney" not doing anything in the matter? Where do extended family have properties? 😉 Who stand to gain if #sabarimala is converted to 365 days open tourist spot instead of open on few days religious temple? Cheruvalli estate airport plan! @Swamy39
@rajeshpadmar @Equateall @Swamy39 Where do this organisation have assets? Who runs conversion Mafia. Connect the dots.…
@rajeshpadmar @Equateall @Swamy39 Who owns properties nearby cities and areas. Who will gain if nearby Cheruvalli estate airport plan to be commercially viable which needs sabarimala to become 365 days open tourist spot instead of open only few days of the year temple. Follow money trail!…

अय्यप्पा की भगति में, भक्तिन भईं अधीर
इष्टदेव की सुरति में, कृश हो गया शरीर
कृश हो गया शरीर, प्राणपण में तलबेली
व्याकुल तन मन नयन, शबरिगिरि गईं अकेली
फेमिनिस्टों सम भक्त, न मीरा गोपि न गणिका
सर्वेश्वर कविराय, बचावें श्री अय्यप्पा

(कुण्डली छन्द)


होगी नाची प्रेम में मीरा सुधबुध खोय
बाट देखती व्यथित मन वर्षों शबरी होय
वर्षों शबरी होय तजो भगती वह भाई
नूतन नवधा भक्ति कर रहीं तृप्ति देसाई
प्रेम प्रतीक्षा प्रार्थना न पादसेवन जो होगी
सर्वेश्वर कविराय “गुरिल्ला टैक्टिक” होगी

(कुण्डली छन्द)
