Women have constitutional right to enter Sabarimala temple: SC

The Supreme Court today said women have the constitutional right to enter Sabarimala temple in Kerala and pray like men without being discriminated against.
A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, said that even if there was no law, women cannot be discriminated against with regard to offering prayer in a temple. The court is hearing a petition challenging the decision of the Devaswom board, which manages the temple, banning entry of women of age group 10-50 years.
The apex court was informed by the Kerala government that it also supported the entry of women of all age groups in the temple.
Senior advocate Indira Jaising, appearing for one of the intervenors, assailed the practice and said that the ban on the entry of women of certain age groups was violative of various fundamental rights including Article 17 which deals with untouchability.
 
The hearing on the plea filed by petitioners Indian Young Lawyers Association and others, remained inconclusive and would continue tomorrow.
