Since the Sabarimala Temple verdict, Kerala has been gripped for clashes between female pilgrims, journalists, and right-wing groups, which is growing violently.
But it is good to see how the police are putting everything to bring some peace around it. Yes! In the middle of all such chaos, a Tamil Nadu cop, Mohan Iyer, bravely and single handedly managed the crowd and dared to voice his dissent on the ongoing protest.
The video which has gone viral on the internet shows him daring protestors to attack buses.

The incident took place near the Kaliyakkaviali border where he bravely handled the crowd.
He has also been rewarded by the Kerala State Road Transport Corporation Managing director Thachankary with a citation letter and ₹1,000.
In an interview with News18, he said,
“First I tried to talk to them but they were not listening. The protestors were threatening that they will pelt stones at the bus and also to attack the driver. So, I spoke in our area style. This is common in our area. Immediately after that, the protesters dispersed.”
Such brave cops are needed and are respected wholeheartedly.
