Now, Muslim women groups protest in Mumbai demanding entry in Haji Ali Dargah
Mumbai: Two days after Maharashtra's Shani Shingnapur temple made headlines over ban on women's entry, some Muslim women groups on Thursday protested in Mumbai demanding entry in Haji Ali Dargah.
Several activists belonging to Muslim women groups held protest with placards demanding entry in Haji Ali Dargah.
Earlier, the Bombay High Court had said it would wait for Supreme Court's ruling on entry of women in Sabarimala temple of Kerala before deciding on a similar plea in case of Haji Ali Dargah.
The trustees of Haji Ali Dargah had told the court earlier that entry of women in close proximity to the grave of a male Muslim saint is considered as a grievous sin in Islam.
On Jan 26, hundreds of women activists who were on their way to the Shani Shingnapur temple - to protest the entry ban inside the shrine's inner sanctum - were stopped by the security officials at Supa village in the state.
