Kerala has been on the boil ever since two women of menstruating age-Bindu and Kanakadurga- climbed the Sabarimala Temple. The protests by the BJP-RSS and Right wing outfits turned out voilent at several places, with the most significant being Kannur – the hotbed of political violence. Protesters blocked highways and forced closure of shops and markets located in various parts the region. Bombs were hurled at several places, including at the houses of CPI(M) MLA A.N. Shamseer in Madapeedikayil and BJP leader and Rajya Sabha member V. Muraleedharan at Vadiyil Peedikia. However, no one was injured during the attacks.
The CPI (M) and BJP workers also clashed near Nedumangad police station in Thiruvananthapuram. So far the police have arrested 260 people in connection with the violence in Kannur in the last few days.
In another separate incident, unidentified people set fire to an RSS office in the Pariyaram area on January 5 morning. A group of around 25 Marxist workers also allegedly ransacked the house of
RSS leader K. Chandrasekharan.
Violence in Kerala has also become a hot topic of debate on various social media platforms with several people tweeting about the incidents. One such tweet was:
Weapons seized from #RSS Office Nedumangadu, Trivandrum
Police seize swords, daggers and around half a litre of hydrogen peroxide. Raids were in search of RSS Pracharak Praveen for hurling country made bombs at Nedumangad police station during the hartal last week @CNNnews18

Her comments invited the wrath of Twitterati who took the occasion to lambast her. Check out the reactions:
RSS helped in Chennai & Assam floods. Where were you then?
Praining Pakistan in Pakistan?

You want RSS guys to be buthered daily by communists. RSS always talks about one INDIA but they are not नपुंसक.

Swara Bhaskar is known for raising her voice on topics such as politics, women empowerment and others. If you remember, last year the actress became a target of trolls for her masturbation scene in the movie Veere Di Wedding. She received a lot of flak for showing off too much vulgarity. However, massive trolling has not stopped her.
