Sabarimala: Kerala Govt vehemently opposes review petitions in SC

The Kerala government today vehemently opposed in the Supreme Court a batch of petitions seeking review of the verdict allowing the entry of women of all age groups into the Sabarimala shrine. However, several organisations argued that the judgement is reconsidered. 

A five-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi was told by the counsel for the Kerala government that no ground was made out in any of the petitions seeking review of its September 28, 2018 verdict. 

Several organisations including the Nair Service Society (NSS) and the Thantri of the shrine, have advanced arguments before the bench and sought reconsideration of the verdict.

Former Attorney General and senior advocate K Parasaran, appearing for the NSS, assailed the majority verdict, saying Article 15 of the Constitution throws open for all public the secular institutions of the country but it doesn't deal with religious institutions. 

Travancore Dewasom Board, which runs the Sabarimala temple, supports the Supreme Court verdict allowing all women inside the shrine.
