Barring women from Sabarimala imbecilic: Jayamala

B’luru: In an ‘Exclusive’ chat with ‘Mathrubhumi News,’ Kannada actor Jayamala exhorted the Kerala government to abide by the Constitution and uphold gender equality by allowing female devotees to enter Sabarimala. Accusing Kerala of living in the dark, she said it is imbecilic to deny access to women to the shrine. She reminded that social evils like Sati and the Devadasi tradition were eradicated through law. A dedicated non-makara jyothi day could be set apart for female worshipers for reasons of security. Her 2006 revelation that she had undertaken the pilgrimage and touched the idol had generated controversy and she was asked to retract her statement, which she refused.
