Here’s another unique “secular” news circulating in Kerala’s social media circles. Recently, a dining hall was inaugurated at Vairankottu Bhagavathi Temple in Malappuram district in the Malabar region of Kerala. The temple is managed by the state government-controlled Malabar Devaswom Board.

Attached is an image of the stone plaque that was installed in connection with the dining hall opening. Below is the translation of the image for those who can’t follow Malayalam.

As you can see, the above list has 3 members out of 18, from within the community. While other places of worship are firmly in the control of those religions, our temples have become public property. Was it so difficult to find prominent figures from within the community for this inauguration? Or is it another deliberate attempt by the Kerala communists to mock the entire community, to show us our place?
