As Kerala is facing the worst rainfall since 1924, millions remain stranded in the state trying to save themselves from nature’s fury. In just about a week, heavy rainfall killed hundreds of people and managed to render lakhs homeless. The state exchequer has lost Rs 19,512 crore and over 3 lakh people are being moved into makeshift relief camps.
But what has caused the floods in Kerala? Well for some people, the reason is women’s entry in Sabrimala Temple! Some even think that ‘God Punished Them For Eating Beef’. Instead of finding ways to help people, they decided to play the blame game.
They say that because women entered Sabarimala temple – a temple that prohibited women’s entry – it angered the Gods and caused rains. The committee also offered prayers at the Ramanathaswamy temple, Rameswaram for the relief of Keralities, reports the New Indian Express.
Earlier this month, the Supreme Court had reserved its verdict on the petitions challenging the restriction on the entry of menstruating women into Kerala’s Sabarimala temple. Many on Twitter suggested that this is the reason why Kerala is facing floods right now.

Some people claimed that the calamity was spurred on by ‘Malayalis who ate beef’.
It seems to be true sir
Lord Ayyappa is angry with the Kerala Govt, as whole country knows that Communist & Congressi Workers had publicly slaughtered an innocent Calf in protest of Beef ban, cooked it publicly & feasted on its cooked beef openly on the road !

Can anything be more shameful? Hateful trolls are blaming women for the Kerala floods, asking people to not donate to “a state of beef-eaters” and “a place with so many Muslims and Christians”. Here is a message for all the bigots out there. #KeralaFloodshttps://t.co/TzxMQts9PA pic.twitter.com/BFqdihzOA6

Never take the curse of Gau Mata, 7th November 1966 saw the greatest Genocide of Hindus by Indira Gandhi, it was Gau Asthami, it was also Gau Asthami when Indira Khan Gandhi died the same way, Rajiv Khan Gandhi also died the same way, and now Beef Party Kerala is seeing the same.

This is ridiculous at so many levels and it’s also proof of how juvenile and narrow-minded people can be, even in the 21st century.
