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.
