According to a News18 report, Bindhu Ammini said: Yesterday’s case was not a conspiracy. The message was delivered to all right-wing groups of minors and majors, so they are supposed to attack me whenever and wherever they see me. The benefit they get from attacking me is that they get rewards and respect. “

Supreme Court ruling on Sabrimara

On September 28, 2018, the Supreme Court ruled that women of all ages have the right to enter the Sabrimala Temple in Kerala. Former Chief Justice of India, Judge Dipak Misra, Judge Rohinton Nariman, Judge AM Khanvilkar, Judge DY Chandrachud, and Judge Indu Malhotra have a 4: 1 majority on the constitutional bench. Kerala Hindu Public Place of Worship (Entry Permission) RulesIn 1965, women aged 10 to 50 were banned from entering the Sabrimara Temple.

The bench handling the case made four decisions regarding it. CJI Misra ruled on behalf of himself and Judge Khanwilkar, with Judge Malhotra dissenting. Judges Chandrachud and Nariman have each ruled in agreement.

At his discretion, CJI Misra states: Religious denominationHe also added that section 3 (b). Kerala Hindu Public Place of Worship (Entry Permission) RulesIn 1965, he violated the right of women to participate in religious practices, and added that this section also violated Article 25 of the Constitution of India, which grants all citizens the right to religious freedom. Therefore, CJI Misra has determined that Rule 3 (b) is very strong against the 1965 Act in which it was constructed.

Judge Rohinton Nariman agreed with the former CJI, saying that banning women from entering temples violates Article 25 (1) of the Constitution. Judge Chandra Tude, in his agreed decision, said: “Religion cannot be covered to deny a woman’s right to worship. Treating a woman as a child of a smaller God is a blink of constitutional morality.” He added that physiological characteristics cannot be the basis for denial of rights, and that it is a stigma to prohibit women of a certain age from observing Vlatam.

Judge Chandrachud further emphasized the importance of Article 17 of the Constitution of India, which prohibits untouchables.He went on to say that the Bombay High Court ruling Naras Apamari Not good by law.

She added:It is the religious community, not the court, that constitutes the essential religious practice... Judge Malhotra sought a balance between religious concepts and the principle of indiscrimination. She said that unlike her colleagues, Ayappa’s followers certainly formed another denomination.

Section 3 (b) states that women are not entitled to provide worship in public worship places when they are not due to customs or usages that are permitted to enter public worship places. I have.
