KUKKE SUBRAMANYA: Controversies apart, yede snana was held at the Subramayna temple here on the inaugural day of the three-day annual festival on Tuesday. Police security was beefed up at the temple town although made snana has given way to the legally permissible yede snana, which too has attracted criticism from some quarters.

Deputy Commissioner A B Ibrahim had directed the temple authorities to allow only yede snana in accordance with a directive of the High Court. Over 20,000 people visited the temple on Tuesday. Yede snana is a practice of devotees rolling on the prasadam of Lord Subramanaya served on plantain leaves.

The temple used to be in the eye of the storm during the season every year because of  made sana in which devotees roll over the leftover food of Brahmins.

‘Ban Inhuman Practice’: Mysuru: Retired professor K S Bhagwan has urged the government to ban yede snana, saying the “inhuman” practice is against the spirit of the Constitution. At a protest in city, he said Vishwesha Teertha Swamiji of Udupi Pejawar mutt should take  part in the ritual before advising people abouit it.
