(1) Sabarimala was burnt down in the 50s (2) The cross planting at Nilakkal happened in the 80s (3) The planned airport at Aranmula in the 200s (4) Now women entry. It’s apparent ‘they’ want the land that belongs to Sabarimala at any cost, however long it takes #SaveSabarimala
Sabarimala Temple Arson Case (1950)… | Don’t bother the report has been removed from the link. However I have a copy of the report
To put things in perspective, 40% of the Western Ghats (WG) are in Kerala. The area surrounding Sabarimala is the last remaining pristine forests in Kerala’s WG. They have immense ecological value. At the same time they have immense economic value as well 1/n
To get an idea as to why the land around Sabarimala is so coveted by certain people I suggest going through this brilliant thread by @OneFish_2Fish 2/n
Hypothetical scenario: Libtards, Lutyens & Commies succeed in allowing women (between 10 & 50) to go up the 18 steps & have Ayyappa’s darshan. What next you ask? Then you’ll have cases of harassment filed. Women only paths. Women only facilities i.e. clearing of the forest 1/n
Women only hostels, widening of roads so that vehicles can go all the way up, more jungle clearing, theme parks to entertain bored city children who accompany their parents who are ‘trekking’ up the mala etc...Ayyappa has enough of all this & leaves. Bye-bye #Sabarimala 2/2
While we celebrate what happened in #Sabarimala today, I would like to say 2 things. (1) Remain ever vigilant. They’ll be back (2) Remember the tribal communities of the area who were ready to lay down their lives for #Ayyappa. They happen to be one of the most marginalised 1/n
communities in India. Their lands have been taken, their livelihood & customs destroyed. They suffer serious health issues. Their infant mortality rates are in fact lower than Somalia #Attapadi. They live on subsistence. Many go hungry. Remember what happened to #Madhu? 2/n
So please honour them, engage them, support them. When you holiday in Kerala buy goods & services from them. Pay them a premium. Show them you respect & care for them. Thank you 🙏#SaveSabrimala #SwamiyeSharanamAyyappa 3/3
