THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Devaswom Board president Prayar Gopalakrishnan has said even though the Supreme Court orders entry for women of all age groups in Sabarimala, dignified and obedient women will not climb the holly hillock. “Don’t make Sabarimala a Thailand. We’ve no intention for it or allow that. Devaswom board’s stand is against women of all age groups entering the Sabarimala temple,” he said.

On Friday, the Supreme Court referred  the case regarding women’s Sabarimala entry to a five-member constitution bench. Gopalakrishnan was responding to this court procedure.    

In 2007, the then LDF government had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court in favour of Women’s entry in Sabarimala. But the UDF government that came to power next wanted to maintain the staus-quo of the age-old tradition. Though the current government initially took a similar stand it later reverted it to its earlier stand, which is in favour of women’s entry in Sabarimala.

It was Indian Young Lawyers’ Association, which first approached the court in 2006, seeking permission for women of all age-groups to enter Sabarimala.
