Kerala: BJB with Sabarimala devotees: Amit Shah

Alleging that the LDF government was trying to suppress agitation by Lord Ayyappa devotees using police force, Shah said, “The Kerala government is insulting Ayyappa devotees. How can they arrest devotees who chant hymns.”

Condemning the arrest of devotees protesting against the Kerala government’s decision to implement the Supreme Court’s verdict on Sabarimala, BJP Chief Amit Shah Saturday said the party was “standing like a rock” with the worshippers.

“Today in Kerala a struggle is going on between religious beliefs and state government’s cruelty. More than 2,000 activists and workers from BJP, RSS and other organisations have been arrested. BJP is standing like a rock with devotees, Left government be warned,” Shah said.

With 2,061 people arrested in Kerala after Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan ordered a crackdown on those defying the order, Shah said, “In the name of court judgment, those who want to incite violence, let me tell you that there are many temples which run on different rules and norms.”
