Haji Ali Allows Women Entry In Inner Sanctum Sanctorum After It Fails To Give Any Explanation

Published on 24 October, 2016 at 7:04 pm By

After it failed to provide any substantial argument, Haji Ali has said that it will comply with the Bombay HC’s directives to allow women entry into inner sanctum sanctorum.

The trust had earlier moved the apex court to challenge the order lifting the ban on women from entering the sanctum sanctorum of the renowned Muslim shrine in Bombay.

The Muslim trust had said that the ban was imposed for the safety and security of women. However, the high court rejected this reason.

The court said that the trust  had no power to alter or modify the mode or manner of religious practices of any individual or any group. The court also noted that the aims, objectives and activities of the Haji Ali Dargah Trust were not governed by any custom or tradition and held that it was a public charitable trust and hence, open to people all over the world, irrespective of their caste, creed or gender.

A PIL was filed by two women, Zakia Soman and Noorjehan Niaz, from NGO Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan (BMMA), challenging the ban on women’s entry.

Soman, one of the co-founders of (BMMA), had told Firstpost in August that the Dargah trustees should gracefully accept the HC verdict and implement its order because it was in the same dargah women were allowed to enter the inner sanctum till 2011. They should accept that they made a mistake by barring the women.
