KOCHI: Critic, biographer and orator MK Sanu on Wednesday raised suspicion about casteist elements making inroads into the Sabarimala-related protests. He was speaking to reporters in a press meet organised by the Sree Narayana Seva Sangham in Kochi.
Sanu is the patron of Sree Narayana Seva Sangham which propagates the teachings of Sree Narayana Guru across the globe. He welcomed the Supreme Court verdict and said people should not hesitate in accepting the verdict. He raised fears that the protest in the name of Sabarimala may bring back the caste system.
“I feel the protest has a casteist flair.The boundaries of freedom should be expanded. I have witnessed caste discrimination during my younger days when we were only permitted to pray outside the temple. Only a section of society is protesting. The opinion of every citizen has to be heard,” he said.
