Hindu hardliners threw stones at police and attacked female reporters as they tried to bar women from one of India's holiest temples.
The Lord Ayyappa temple at Sabarim in the southern state of Ker was meant to allow women from Wednesday following an order last month by India's highest court.
But hundreds of traditionalists, attacking baton-wielding police, defied the order - surrounding and shouting at any woman attempting to make it to the hilltop site.
Furious young men smashed the car windows of female television reporters and threatened others, kicking one female correspondent.

Why are non hindus involved with this issue?
Can''t even accept these ppl reaching there
I fail to understand why Mus m lady and a Chr tian lady are so curious to enter the temple ?????? It seems a deliberate attempt by Hindu hating Italian thug Sonia and her Indian sl ve arayi Vijayan, to humiliate and taunt Hindu and Hinduism. Hindus in Ker should support BJP
