Addressing the rally on Friday, Thulasi had said that “Women coming to Sabarimala temple should be ripped into half. One half should be sent to Delhi and the other half should be thrown towards Chief Minister’s (Pinarayi Vijayan) office in Thiruvananthapuram.”
Four review petitions have been filed against the Supreme Court’s Sabarimala judgement.
Earlier, women aged between 10 to 50 were not allowed to visit the temple as per the ‘traditions’ and ‘customs’.
In its landmark verdict, the apex court on September 28 this year, allowed the entry of the women in the temple dedicated to Lord Ayyappa, saying the ban violated their fundamental rights and constitutional guarantees.
