Kollam: Malayalam actor Kollam Thulasi has been booked by the Kerala police for his controversial remarks against women during a National Democratic Alliance (NDA) protest meeting over the Sabarimala temple issue, police said on Sunday.

Addressing the protesters here on Friday, Mr. Thulasi, a BJP supporter, had allegedly said, “women in the restricted age group who visit the Lord Ayappa temple should be ripped apart.”

Dignity of women

An FIR was registered on Saturday against Mr. Thulasi under IPC sections, including 295 (A) (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings), and also under section 119 (A) of Kerala Police Act which deals with acts in public places degrading the dignity of women.

He was booked on a complaint from local DYFI leader Rateesh, police said.

Facing condemnation over his remark, the actor later had claimed that he made it in an emotional state of mind and expressed regret.

Protests

The BJP-led NDA had organised the protest against the LDF government’s decision not to file a review petition against the Supreme Court’s verdict. The State has been rocked by protests by Congress, BJP and Hindu outfits against the government’s move to implement the apex court order.
