DailyO: Kollam temple fire no act of God: Kerala government a culprit

My column on the Kollam Puttingal temple fire and the culprits behind the mishap. This was an incident that could have been completely avoided if the police were discharging its duty.

Ideally, the police would be informed in advance of the use of public address systems and firecrackers in temple premises. In a situation where permission was denied, the police should have intervened and advised the temple authority to not start the fireworks display. Since there is nothing on record that suggests the police attempted to stop it, they are an equal stakeholder in the whole incident as the temple authority.
