The Kerala [Images] government said on Wednesday that it would bring a legislation to enable any believer in Hinduism to offer worship in temples.

Devaswom Minister G Sudhakaran told a seminar on 'Progressive Movement and the Second Guruvayur Satyagraha', organised by DYFI that the present rule stated that any person who by birth is a Hindu can enter temples.

A necessary amendment would be brought forward to enable a believer in Hinduism enter temples, Sudhakaran said.

"Thanthris (chief priests of temples) have no right to determine who is a believer," Sudhakaran added.
