Prime Minister inaugurated 85th annual Sivagiri pilgrimage celebrations.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the 85th annual Sivagiri pilgrimage celebrations at Sivagiri Mutt in Kerala. The Sivagiri Mutt is a major spiritual-cum- pilgrim centre of the Ezhava community in Kerala and was established by Sri Narayana Guru, who propagated the message of " One Caste, One Religion and One God for Mankind".
On the occasion, the prime minister also highlighted his government's efforts to address the long-pending grievances of the Muslim women, especially in terms of bringing the triple talaq bill. "After a long time, the Muslim women got freedom from triple talaq. They had been suffering for years," he said. The prime minister will, on January 1, 2018, make another address via video conferencing, for the curtain raiser ceremony of the commemoration of Prof SN Bose's 125th birth anniversary at Kolkata.
