More than 750 people have been arrested so far amid violent protests after two women made history by entering a Prominent Hindu Temple in the Southern Indian State of Kerala.

A third woman has also worshipped at the flashpoint temple amid high tension today.

Clashes on Wednesday and Thursday between devotees, activists of Kerala’s ruling leftist alliance and riot police left one man dead and at least 15 injured.

Meanwhile, scores of Hindu devotees in New Delhi took to the streets and set ablaze Southern Kerala State Chief Pinarayi Vijayan’s effigy for allowing two women to defy a Centuries-old ban and enter the hill shrine of Sabarimala.

Angry Protesters defined the day as ‘black day’ for Kerala and claimed that the State Government was aiming to instigate a communal war in the Province.
