Rahul Easwar: President, Ayyappa Dharma Sena

A man of much bombast, he is frequently seen on both the regional and national channels. The grandson of tantri Kandararu Maheshwararu, late chief priest of Sabarimala, he has been in the news for all the right (wing) reasons. President of the Ayyappa Dharma Sena, he calls himself a Gandhi bhakt and a follower of K.B. Hedgewar. This Gandhi bhakt attacks ‘feminazis’ on Twitter, and has vowed not to allow a single ‘feminazi’ into the temple. He was picked up by police as the chief instigator of the protests on the day the temple opened for the first time after the verdict. When released, he claimed to know of around 20 people who were ready to spill blood or urine (“contingency plans B and C”) in the temple if a young woman entered. Following this, the tantri family disowned him. He was again taken into custody by the police for his controversial statements, and is now out on conditional bail.
