HIGHLIGHTS

- The pilgrims raised slogans against the Supreme Court's verdict

- The pilgrims in Sri Lanka have condemned SC's decision

- Many women participated in the protest organised in Sri Lanka

Every year a minimum of hundred devotees from Vavuniya district, Sri Lanka make their way to India for paying a visit to the Sabarimala temple in Kerala.

Following the Supreme Court order which allows women of all age groups to visit the holy shrine, the pilgrims in Sri Lanka have condemned this decision and organised a protest in Sri Lanka.

The pilgrims raised slogans against the Supreme Court's verdict and marched 3-km-distance demanding that the temple is allowed to follow its own rules and regulations. Surprisingly, a large group of women has opposed the decision.

Many women participated in the protest organised in Sri Lanka. The rally, however, ended with the protesters handing over a request letter to the government agent of Vavuniya district asking for government intervention through the Indian embassy to pass on their message condemning the Supreme Court order.
