2.5 Million Ayyappa Devotees Line up with Lamps: ‘Ayyappa Jyothi’ Creates an Unprecedented Expression of Hindu Unity in Kerala

Date: 27-Dec-2018

T Satisan

‘Ayyappa Jyothi’, organised by the Sabarimala Karma Samiti, witnessed unprecedented participation of women, and formed a 795-km long chain of light between Kasaragod and Kanyakumari

The dusk of December 26 witnessed a luminous and devotional Ayyappa Jyoti throughout the length and breadth of the state of Kerala. At sharp 6 pm around 22 lakhs oil lamps, placed in plates, were lit and carried by the same number of devotees throughout the state. They lined up on the left side of the roads - from Kasaragod to Anakamali in Ernakulam district on National Highway and from there to Kaikkavila, Thiruvananthapuram district, the border between Kerala Tamil Nadu, on Main Centre (MC) Road. From Kayikkavila to Kanyakumari the people lined up on more than 50 km long Thiruvananthapuram - Kanyakumari Highway. 70 % of the participants everywhere was women and young girls. The length covered by the programme was more than 800 km. It was intact with no missing links. The starting point at Hosankidi Sri Dharma Sashta Temple was graced by Yogananda Saraswathi, Kondayoor Ashram head. At Kayikkavila, superstar Suresh Gopi MP lit the lamp.

The programme organised to mark the protest against the CPM regime's continuous efforts to violate the faith and tradition in Shabarimala was a clear warning that Hindus can no more be taken for granted. It refers to the government-sponsored attempts to bring young women to the shrine with the police escort.

The programme was conducted in the most efficient manner sans any sort of traffic block. It was a surprise to the Keralites where a 50 strong demonstration causes traffic blocks in the cities of the state for several hours together. Conspicuous by absence were publicities like bills or posters or writing on the compound walls, mike announcement, sponsored newspaper pages, flex boards and slogans anywhere. Credit for the exemplary success goes to the well-oiled machinery of the RSS, RSS-inspired organisations, scores of Hindu caste organisations, etc. They resorted to mouth-to-mouth campaigns. Hindu women and girls thronged the roads of the state with full enthusiasm, devotion and spirits.

Participation of prominent citizens in the state enhanced the acceptance, colour and charm of the Jyothi. Swami Chidanandapuri (head of Kulathoor Advaithashramam), T.P. Senkumar IPS (former Kerala Police cheif), Dr. K.S. Radhakrishnan (former VC of Kalati Sri Sankara Sanskrit University), MGA Ramam IPS (former ADG of Police), Fr. Kuriakose (Christian priest), former minister Dr. R Sundareshan Nair, K.P. Sasikaala Teacher (Chairperson, Hindu Aikyavedi), SJR Kumar (Shabarimala Karma Samiti) BJP leaders Adv. P.S. Sreedharan Pillai, O. Rajagopal MLA, P.K. Krishnadas, A.N. Radhakrishnan, Shobha Surendran, RSS leaders P.E.B. Menon, Adv. K.K. Balaram, Gopalankutti Master, Social worker Ashwathi Jwala, Swami Vivikthananda (Kerala head of Chinmaya Mission, Vivekamrutha Chaithanya of Amruthanandamayi Ashram, KPMS leaders Neelakantan Master, T.V. Babu, SNDP Yogam leader Bahuleyan, Pandalam royal family members Sasikumar Verma and Narayana Verma, Guruvayoor Srikrishna temple thantri Chennas Dineshan Namboothirippad, Filmmakers Ali Akbar and Rajasenan, Actress Menaka, etc. were some among them.

It is not clear how many practicing Hindus are in Kerala.

If Hindus are sizable in numbers in Kerala and are serious about Hinduism, this issue would not have come up.

Practicing Hindus in Kerala, it seems, are not much.

I guess this Sabarimala agitation will be a turning point in the growth of BJP in Kerala!!

Sabarimala will be the end of Marxism in India: Rajeev Chandrasekhar
7, Jan 2019, 4:45 PM IST
New Delhi: In an exclusive interview, Member of Parliament Rajeev Chandrasekhar told MyNation that the Sabarimala row was being used by the left government of Pinarayi Vijayan in Kerala to deflect attention from its own acute failures in governance. Chandrasekhar, who is himself a guruswamy (devotee) who has done 18 consecutive years of pilgrimage to the shrine of Lord Ayappa in Sabarimala, said there was serious anger among Hindus in all the south Indian states over the way the Vijayan government has handled the matter
