Kerala high court dismissed a false case hoisted upon Hindu Aikya Vedi state president KP Sasikala teacher and Sabarimala Karma Samiti general convener SJR Kumar. They protested against the communist move to allow entry to women of all ages in Sabarimala in 2018 and the Kannur Town Police had registered cases against them.
Justice AA Ziyad Rehman dismissed the case against KP Sasikala and SJR Kumar. Hindu organizations had called for a hartal in connection with the entry of women into Sabarimala. Though the resistance was peaceful, Communists accused Sasikala and Kumar of violence during the hartal.
Incidentally, neither Sasikala nor Kumar was named in the first FIR that the Kannur police filed. The local administration later added their names following political pressure upon the then-state police chief Loknath Behera IPS. The then Pinarayi Vijayan-led communist government used the Supreme Court ruling to destroy the customs and traditions of Sabarimala temple and used unscrupulous ladies (including Muslim women) to enter the sanctum sanctorum. The communists were egged on by both the Christian conversion mafia and the radical Islamists.
Advocate Sajith Kumar appearing for Sasikala and Kumar contended that the Kerala police could provide no evidence against the accused in their final report. Accepting this, the court dismissed the case and issued an order.
The judge dropped all charges against the Hindu leaders, noting that the prosecution did not correctly substantiate the allegations. “After examining all the relevant inputs, I believe that none of the offenses alleged against the petitioners are attracted. The prosecution against the petitioners in the final report is a clear abuse of the process of law, ” the court noted in the final judgment.
Police had arrested Sasikala on her way to Sabarimala temple and defiled her ‘Vratham’ in November 2018. In December 2018, the Communist regime ‘honoured’ ten women police officers who took part in the arrest of Sasikala with awards and good service entries.
Thousands of such false cases were filed against Hindus who visited Sabarimala and devotees (including women) were thrashed by the Kerala police. The Kerala high court had earlier dismissed a 2018 case registered by the Thodupuzha police against KP Sasikala and others for allegedly ‘inciting violence.’ In March 2022, Justice K Haripal issued the order to drop all charges against Sasikala after observing no incitement to violence.
Recently, the state government was forced to cancel many cases registered during the Sabarimala protests since none were violent.
