The Made Snana ritual involves people from lower castes rolling on the leftovers of food eaten by upper castes. This inhuman ritual is being practised in many temples across Karnataka, despite protests from various quarters
Many social activists, progressive thinkers, political heads and religious heads have demanded the ritual be banned. The Vice-Chancellor of Bangalore University, G. Rajashekar, Prof G K Govinda Rao have publicly condemned the ritual.
Activists protesting about this issue like K.S. Shivaramulu have been attacked and manhandled
We request the Chief Minister of Karnataka to immediately ban the ritual across the state
