The Supreme Court in India rejected the petition of Akhila Bharatha Hindu Mahasabha to allow Muslim Women to enter the Mosques. The court session headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gagoi said the court might think to approve the decision if the Muslim women themselves came and challenged it.
The petition was filed by the Kerala President of Akhila Bharatha Hindu Mahasabha, Swamy Dethathreya Sai Swaroop Nath and he has also challenged the order of the Kerala High Court that dismissed his plea. The Supreme Court also mentioned the order of the Kerala High Court as a publicity exercise.
The petitioner said that the restriction of Muslim women in the Masjids for prayers along with men was also a denial of justice and deprived them of their rights to equality, such an act is a disgrace to the modern society. In addition to the petition the petitioner has also asked for a ban on burqa.
