Temples banning women
A day after Shri Shri Ravi Shankar has backed women activists demanding entry into the Shani Shignapur Temple in Nashik, the Supreme Court will hear a plea related to Sabrimala Temple which too bars women from entering its inner sanctum.
The spiritual leader had said that there should be no discrimination between men and women trying to enter temple premises but our netas continue to dither.
Ever since there has been this furore over Sabrimala Temple, there have been women’s rights groups across the country that have been up in arms against this practice of barring women from places of worship saying that the right to pray is a fundamental right, of sorts. And that no person can deny any gender or any individual entry into the temple on any grounds.
All eyes are now on the Apex Court that is all set to hear the matter which has now become a pan India campaign.

Right to pray

God is all pervading and one can pray from within one's self. Law is developed on the basis of customs and usages.For political mileage many political leaders make statements. Sabarimalai permits ladies below 10 years and above 50 years and the logic is understandable.Priests performing pooja in sanctum sanctum observe great deal of sanctity by taking early bath and will not touch anything outside and avoid even natural call mainly to observe absolute cleanliness.Demanding permission for all inside the sanctum is too much and the purity can not be maintained.Sri Sri Guruji said no entry inside for anyone is absolutely I support.Kerala CM rightly refused to interfere in Temple or religious matters.It will create turmoil in society. Demand is childish and are not real devotes but only playing political games to disturb peace in society.
