Kerala Muslim committee expels woman who tried to enter Sabarimala

On Friday Pamba and Sabarimala witnessed dramatic scenes as Rehana Fathima along with journalist Kavitha Jakkala started trekking from Pamba.

The Kerala Muslim Jama-ath Council has expelled Rehana Fathima from the community. The council has also decided to cancel membership of her family members from Mahall Committee.

The decision comes after Rehana Fathima attempted to enter Sabarimala temple on Friday.

The Jama-ath Council in a press release alleged that Rehana Fathima has been expelled from the community for trying to enter Sabarimala which was against the religious sentiments of lakhs of Hindus.

Rehana, who took part in the ‘Kiss of love’ protest and acted nude in movies does not have the right to use a Muslim name. The council has also urged the state government to book her under section 153A for hurting religious sentiments.

On Friday Pamba and Sabarimala witnessed dramatic scenes as Rehana Fathima along with journalist Kavitha Jakkala started trekking from Pamba. Amid tight police security and led by IG Sreejith, the team reached the Nadapandal.

Owing to protest and pressure from the chief priest, the plan was aborted at the last level.

Kerala Devasom Minister Kadakapally Surendran told the media that activists should not come to Sabarimala to prove a point.

He also warned the police that they should have done proper background verification before accompanying people to Sabarimala.
