Why is Modi silent on the Sabarimala temple issue?We have had one of the worst times when the Prime Minister has not even addressed a single press conference of note. Far from being transparent, his silence on many sensitive issues is glaring.
The Sabarimala temple issue is one such. It is a well-known fact that the fringe parties of the BJP, in particular, the Hindu outfits are up to a huge amount of mischief. The rule of the law is just not there are and they are preventing the women devotees from even coming close to the temple. They do not even respect the Supreme Court judgement. Till the highest court of the land reviews the petitions that have now being filed, the law is that women should be allowed.
It is ridiculous to argue that the so-called "traditions" have to be upheld. The BJP is trying its best to make its presence felt in Kerala, by hook or by crook. Yet, the PM has not even spoken a single word. He does not even condemn the outrageous behaviour of his own party.
The highly educated people of Kerala will probably give the BJP a bigger drubbing in the Lok Sabha elections as well.
