Nanthoor: Police detained five Hindu Jagarana Vedike (HJV) members for raising slogans against actor, Prakash Rai, at Shanthi Kiran, Bajjodi on Saturday December 1. Prakash Rai has been participating in the Jananudi programme as chief guest.

As Prakash Raj arrived at the venue, HJV members raised slogans and asked Rai to go back. However, the police intervened immediately and detained Sharath Padavinangadi, Subhash, Praveen, and Sunil. With the arrest of the HJV members, the programme went ahead as scheduled.

Prakash Rai spoke at the programme and said, “There is no issue at Sabarimala. Some unnecessarily created it for political mileage. They publicly announced that it is a golden opportunity for them to encash. I think it is a very cheap political strategy. We cannot allow it. Getting mileage in the name of religion and belief systems does not serve a progressive society. Religion and beliefs are personal. But we should understand that religion and rituals do not provide us daily bread and education. They do not allow grow up scientifically. “

Speaking on the protestors Mr Rai said, “They seem to love me a lot and they came in search of me . If I had known that they would hold protest I would have invited them to take part in this programme for a discussion with me”.

As a precautionary measure, a huge contingent of police force has been deployed around the venue.
