Kerala Election Exit Poll Results 2021 Live: Pinarayi Vijayan to return as CM as Left projected to win again in Kerala
Election to the Kerala assembly was held on April 6. Its outcome is expected to be in stark contrast to that of the 2019 Lok Sabha election which was an unholy alliance for unruly politicking by the BJP and the Congress against the backdrop of the Supreme Court judgment of 28 September 2018 on entry of women to the Sabarimala Ayyappan temple.
The judgment of a five-member constitution bench headed by the chief justice of India, Dipak Misra, in a 4-1 majority, struck down provisions of The Kerala Hindu Places of Public Worship (Authorization of Entry) Rules, 1965 that banned women between the age 10 and 50 from the temple. Justice Indu Malhotra, the lone woman on the bench, had a dissenting view.
The judgment was grist to the sinister propaganda mill of the protestors that even in “god’s own country” god is not safe, conjured up by the highly parochial patriarchal bogey of Kerala men that celibacy and sexuality of Ayyappan at Sabarimala will be violated by the entry of nubile women [between 10 and 50 years of age] and prodded their women to take to the streets en masse.
