Lankan woman barred from Sabarimala temple

After two Indian women offered prayers at Sabarimala temple, in Kerala, India, breaking an ancient taboo against women, a 46-year-old woman from Sri Lanka tried to enter the holy shrine but was stopped by Lord Ayyappa devotees.

The woman told the news agency ANI that she went up to the holy steps, but was not allowed to go further.

The woman was accompanied by her relatives. Earlier, two women in their 40s, Bindu and Kanakadurga, created history by defying the centuries-old ban on the entry of women between the age of 10 to 50 and offered prayers at Sabarimala.

The women, however, maintained that they had no affiliations to any political party and denied allegations saying that they were not tools of anyone, reported news agency PTI.
