ulsavam-

KANNUR: The board erected by a temple committee that denied entry to Muslims in the festival ground adjacent to a temple has sparked a row. Condemn and protest is rising in social media over the discriminatory stand taken by the temple committee of Malyot Palyotkavu temple in Kunjimangalam, Kannur. Most of the members of the temple committee are CPM workers. Meanwhile, the temple committee authorities have said that the board was erected in the past years also and they are not ready to respond to the controversy.

The Kavu festivals in Malabar is known for their secularism. People across different religions take part in Kaliyatta Kavus. However, the board has come up in the festival ground of Malyot Palyotkavu temple denying entry to Muslims in Payyanur, which is considered as the stronghold of CPM. This board which promotes religious animosity puts CPM in trouble. Congress leadership is gearing up to politicise the issue.
