Kanaka Durga, 39, one of two Indian women to enter Sabarimala temple which conventionally bans the entry of women of menstrual age, is seen at a hospital in Manjeri town in Kerala.
Kanaka Durga, one of the first women of menstruating age to enter the Sabarimala Ayyappa temple after the significant Supreme Court order, has been taken to One Stop Centre run by Social Justice Department after her relatives declined to take her in.
Kanaka Durga, who had been enduring treatment at Calicut medical college after purportedly being attacked by her mother-in-law, was taken to the government shelter home at Perinthalmanna after her brother and husband stated that she won't be permitted to enter their houses.
Kanaka Durga was hospitalized on January 15 after she agonized injuries on her head and ear following the alleged beating by her mother-in-law. Kanaka Durga's brother Bharat Bhooshan had said she won't be acceptable inside his house at Areekode until she apologizes to Ayyappa devotees and Hindu community.
The Supreme Court had ordered full-time security to Kanaka Durga and Bindu after they loomed the top court seeking protection. Well, let’s see if Kanaka Durga can outstrip the patriarchal society and orthodox thinking.
