Udupi: CPI(M) activists have been arrested by the Town police when they were trying to enter the Krishna Temple here on December 27.
The padayatra was flagged off in Mangalore by the Religious Head of
Nidumamidi Mahasamsthana Math, Bangalore Shree Veerabhadra Channamalla
Swamiji in Mangalore on December 24.
The State Secretary of CPI(M) B Madhava, Sunil Kumar Bajal, Muneer
Katipalla, K Shanker, Vasanth Acharya, Srirama Reddy and more than 3,000
CPI(M) members participated in the padayatra.
Before the flag off in Mangalore, the CPI(M) members staged a protest
against the inhuman act of Made Madesnana in front of the DC office.
Shree Veerabhadra Channamalla Swamiji said that the Made Madesnana is
nothing but discrimination of lower caste by the upper caste. There is a
belief that if anyone roll over the left overs one will be cured from
skin diseases. There is also a belief that prayers will be answered, and
childless couples will be blessed with children. Opposing such beliefs
the Swamiji had said that there is absolutely no cure for any skin
diseases but chances are very high to be infected with skin disease if
anyone rolls over the leftovers.
The protesters were on padayatra to Sri Krishna Temple in Udupi, when
they reached near Sanskrita College, police stopped them from
proceeding further. There was a commotion between the police and the
protesters. Police resorted to lathi charge to control the protesters
from entering inside the temple. All the leaders of the CPI(M) have been
taken into custody.

CPM activists to picket Sri Krishna mutt on Dec 27
Udupi, Dec 23, 2012, DHNS:
Communist Party of India (Marxist) will picket
Udupi Sri Krishna temple to protest against the ‘Made Snana’ and
‘Pankthi Bedha’ here on December 27.
Speaking to media
persons, Udupi District CPI(M) Secretary K Shankar said that the CPI(M)
has organised a jatha from Byndoor to Udupi on December 24, to condemn
the rituals of ‘Made Snana’ and ‘Pankthi Bedha’.
of the party, progressive thinkers and leaders from various
organisations will take part in the protest. CPI (M) Central Committee
Member Srinivas Rao will inaugurate the jatha from Mangalore Deputy
Commissioner’s Office on December 24 that will reach Udupi on December
27, he added.
He accused that both ‘Made Snana’ and ‘Pankthi
Bedha’ are inhuman rituals. The party strongly condemns any
modifications in ‘Made Snana’ to ‘Ede Snana’ as proposed by the State
government. Both are similar rituals and hardly make any difference.
State government should properly describe the inhumanity hidden behind
the practice of the ritual to Supreme Court and stress for the need to
ban the ritual, he added.
He said that the Supreme Court had only
stayed the High Court order and it is not the final verdict. It is not
the victory of ‘Made Snana’. The State-level campaign against the evil
practices intends to create awareness among mass over the superstitions
and false notion hidden in the practice, he said.

The CPM, which has launched a movement against ‘made
snana’ (the practice of Dalits rolling over leftover food eaten by
people of the upper castes) at the Kukke Subramanya temple, has
criticised the government for deciding to continue the practice in
another form called ‘yede snana.’
In response to a writ petition
filed by Veerabhadra Channamalla Swami against ‘made snana’, the
government has filed an affidavit stating that it will ban ‘made snana’
in the present form and continue ‘yede snana’, enabling devotees to roll
over banana leaves containing food offered to Lord Subramanya.
is unfortunate that the High Court has agreed to it. But we don’t
agree. We want a total ban on any such practice,” Reddy said.
He alleged that the concept of ‘yede snana’ was not that of the government, but of Vishveshateertha Swami of the Pejawar Mutt.
It's time to think seriously.
