The temple committee of Thirumandhamkunnu temple at Angadipuram in Malappuram infested with commies and pro-Islamists has painted the temple with the color of Pakistani flag – green and white – ahead of the Pooram festival. Even more alarming is the sizable presence of Muslims in the festival committee as patrons and members.
The first name on the panel is that of Muslim League leader and Member of Parliament Abdul Samad Samadani who was allegedly instrumental in fraudulent conversion of eminent Malayalam writer Kamala Das. (Kamala Das was trapped in love jihad on the promise of marriage and after conversion, she was dumped.)
Out of the 14 patrons, five are Muslims. The chairman of the committee is Manjalamkuzhi Ali, MLA. One of the vice-chairmen of the panel is Jose Varghese, a Christian.
Recently, the Kerala government had banned use of saffron color in the decoration of Vellayani Bhadrakali temple located on the southern outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram ahead of the Kaliyootu Mahotsavam. Upset devotees, not only decorated the temple in saffron but set up a restroom for police using saffron clothes. But the police refused to use that facility.
The incidents of onslaught on temples have increased ever since the CPI(M)-led government came to power in the state.
