The Supreme Court on Friday stayed the modified Made Made Snana ritual proposed by the state. The Apex Court also issued notices to the Karnataka government, Nidumamidi Swami and the Adivasi Budakattu Hitarakshana Vedike.

In a move to end the controversy surrounding the practice, the state government had made a submission in the Karnataka High Court suggesting modifications to the ritual under which devotees will no longer be allowed to roll on leftovers of food consumed by Brahmins.

The president of the Adivasi Budakattu Hitarakshana Vedike had filed a special leave petition in the Apex Court opposing the state government’s proposal and sought observance of the ritual in its original form.

The High Court had agreed to slight modifications suggested by the state government to the ritual. 

The Made Made Snana ritual is observed in Kukke Subrahmanya temple during Shasti Mahotsava.

Following the Supreme Court order, locals,  including members of indigenous tribe Malekudiyas in Subrahmanya, celebrated by lighting fire crackers.
