Union Minister Ananth Kumar Hegde on Wednesday termed the Kerala government’s handling of the Sabarimala row as the “daylight rape” of Hindus, crossing yet another dubious milestone in a political career studded with controversies.
“The chief minister’s prejudice, rather than the Leftist prejudice, is causing complete confusion in Kerala. The Supreme Court has given the direction, I totally agree with that. But since law and order is a state subject, it should have seen how it can be managed diplomatically without hurting the faith of the masses,” Mr Hegde told news agency ANI in a measured tone, before pausing to drop his bombshell: “The Kerala government has entirely failed. I would like to say that it’s totally daylight rape on Hindu people.” Reported by the ndtv.
