Tharoor asks BJP, RSS not to desecrate Sabarimala shrine

Congress leader Shashi Tharoor Friday asked the BJP and RSS not to desecrate the Sabarimala temple and termed as utterly disgraceful the recent violence at the hill shrine. The Thiruvananthapuram MP also blamed the state government for acting in haste and not consulting the stakeholders before implementing the Supreme Court verdict, permitting women of all age groups to offer prayers at the Lord Ayyappa shrine. If you have seen the BJP s behaviour in terms of violence they have conducted in a goonish manner and intimidation of people in Sabarimala, has been utterly disgraceful. By reducing the sanctified shrine into a place for political battle, the state BJP chief openly gloats that this has been a golden opportunity for his party, which is utterly shameful, Tharoor said at the airport here. He also said while respecting the wishes of believers, the rule of law and order must be maintained. We have to respect the wishes of believers and have to ensure the rule
