SC to hear pleas on discrimination against women after 3 weeks

PTI
Supreme Court has fixed pleas regarding discrimination against women in various religions for hearing after 3 weeks in the Sabrimala case. It was hearing pleas in the case relating to discrimination against women at religious places including Kerala’s Sabarimala Temple.

The Court said its Secretary General will coordinate with lawyers in re-framing or adding issues to be dealt by it. A nine-judge bench said that it will only hear questions referred in the review order passed by the court on November 14 by a 5-judge bench.

An apex court bench, headed by then Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, had on November 14 asked a larger bench to re-examine various religious issues. These included the entry of women into the Sabarimala Temple and mosques, and practice of female genital mutilation in the Dawoodi Bohra community. 


A total of 60 petitions will be heard by a nine-judge Constitution bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde. The other judges on the bench are Justices R Banumathi, Ashok Bhushan, L Nageswara Rao, B R Gavai, S A Nazeer, M M Shantanagoudar, R Subhash Reddy, and Surya Kant. The new bench has no judge from the previous bench.
