Description
Hinduism had been undergoing reformation through all centuries. Whenever it reached a stage where further reformation was unacceptable to those higher in the hierarchy, dissatisfied people formed new religions and flocked to these. Buddhism was one such example. 20th century and 21st century Hinduists tend to believe that all reformation needed in this religion, and possible in this religion, has already happened and nothing more is needed or possible. But it is never all dross will be removed from their minds and this religious body. Look how bad their convictions are on if all the needed reformation has been over! The Hinduists throughout India interested in capturing ruling power of the country kill people who eat red meat, in the name of Rama. They know Rama hunted in the forests. What do they think Rama hunted and ate? Piggish priests, who will normally love to see luscious and lusty women come to temples with nothing on if possible, forbade women coming to temples wearing the all-covering and popular dress, Churidar; they want to see at least their shoulders, neck and abdomen. Tell us; is all the needed reformation in Hinduism over?

Summary
Mad things are happening in Kerala in the name of religion in temples. Race, class and gender apartheids enforced by the upper class in Hindu religion through centuries, suppressed once by the British colonial administration for a time, are returning with new vigour. Fanatics and extremists in Hinduism, armed with anti-constitutional attitudes and backed by a timid civil administration, create hell in places where people meet for worship. Reformation is now a distant dream in this religion.

Excerpt
First the temples were walled-in, so that the priests grabbing the breasts of women could not be seen from the outside. Then there came electric lights, replacing the mellow oil lamps and taking away the ambience of softness in the temple atmosphere, bringing in ruthless harshness instead, reflecting the perpetrators’ minds well. The chants and prayers from human lips were the next to go, to be replaced with coarse recorded instrumentalized music from cassette players, c. d. players and pen drives roaring through multi loud speakers, so that the time spent on praying also could be liberated for more breast-grabbing and if possible copulation, or the frightened horrible shrieks from girls being raped inside temples could not be heard outside as it happened in Jammu in 2018. What other benefits did walls and electric lights and loud speakers bring to Hindu temples and Hindu religion? Did worship become more ardent and pious and people, priests, temple and religion cleaner? Soon temples became no more soothing to human minds and people lost interest and confidence in this kind of temples and religion. If someone says electric lights, compound walls and loud speakers were reasons for the degeneration of Hindu temples and religion, how can one disagree?
