12 May 2016,
Mumbai: Bhumata Brigade Chief Trupti Desai finally succeeded in managing to enter Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai today, against which massive protests were held earlier.
Today, Trupti and her team members managed to enter Haji Ali and went till where the women are allowed. After entering Dargah, Trupti said that she hopes the entry of women to Mazhaar starts soon.
Trupti had earlier tried to enter Haji Ali on April 28, but could not enter due to the massive protests and the blockade by the protesters. But this time she has managed to enter Haji Ali and with proper police protection. They were not even allowed to go till the gates of the dargah.
Trupti Desai, who started her fight for the equal rights of women at the places of worship, started this journey from the famous Shani Shingnapur of Pune where women are not allowed to enter the inner sanctum sanctorum.
Happy that Trupti Desai came to the Dargah today, but she shouldnt have come with police: Haji Rafat Hussain, AIMIM pic.twitter.com/fTnrzYP2aP
