Actor Rajinikanth on Saturday said there should be no “interference” in temple traditions being followed for a long time, in his first response to the recent Supreme Court order on the entry of women of all age groups into the Sabarimala shrine in Kerala and the subsequent protests.
Speaking to reporters in Chennai, he said there was no second opinion on equality for women in every sphere.
“But when you talk about a temple, every temple has its time honoured rituals, besides traditions being followed for a long time. My humble opinion is that no one should interfere in that,” Rajinikanth said.
Kerala has been witnessing protests against the entry of girls and women of menstrual age into Sabarimala temple since the government had said it would abide by the ruling of the apex court.
