24-year-old Kavitha Jakkala, a Hyderabad based news anchor, became the first woman between the ages of 10 and 50 to reach near the sanctum sanctorum of Kerala’s Sabarimala temple. Another woman, identified as Rehana Fathima from Ernakulam, also joined Kavitha and her three-member crew. Though these two women, accompanied by Inspector General of Police S Sreejith and around 80 police personnel, had almost reached the sanctum sanctorum, the government made it clear that it was not right to hurt the sentiments of devotees and insisted that the women should not be allowed to enter, as they are activists and not devotees.

Devaswom Minister Kadakampalli Surendran informed the Director General of Police that the temple was not a place for activism and that it would be irresponsible for the police team to take the women further. "Two activists have reached near the temple, it is not possible for us to identify each person. The government's interest is to protect the interests of the devotees. Sabarimala is not a place for you to prove the power of your activism. I plead to all activists to not misuse the judgment like this. If true devotees come, the government is committed to taking them to the sannidhanam. The government is not responsible for providing security to activists," he said.

A group of devotees had staunchly protested against the women entering the temple. Though IG Sreejith, who had accompanied the two women, spoke to the crowd twice, he could not convince them to disperse.

“We must enact the SC’s judgement. Just like you are protesting for your rights, these women have come feeling they have rights and must exercise their rights. we are compelled to protect them as it is our job. I will consult with the government about whether this should go any further and come back and speak to you all. Until then please do not engage in any violence or violent protests here," he had said.

The government seems to have arrived at the decision keeping in mind two factors: The protests by devotees at the sannidhanam; and the fact that Rehana had made a controversial post a few days ago on social media which had created much anger.
