RSS Supports Women’s Right To Enter Temples

Published on 13 March, 2016 at 2:47 pm By

Taking a U-turn from its previous stand, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has now extended its support to the call for allowing women’s entry into temples across the country.

Earlier, it had said that the reasons behind traditions restricting entry of women in temples like Sabarimala needed to be understood.

In its annual report, which was recently released, it said:

“Because of some unfair traditions, at certain places there has been a lack of consensus on the question of temple entry. Such sensitive issues should be resolved through discussion and dialogue and not through agitations.”

 

Bhaiyyaji Joshi, the general secretary of the organisation, further added that men and women should be treated without any discrimination.

He also supported Bhumata Brigade leader Trupti Desai over women’s entry in temples across the country.



However, the report slammed agitation against such issues and also, asked to restrain from politicizing it.  “Such issues should be resolved through discussion and dialogue,” it said.

The organisation noted that joint efforts of temples administration and religious leaders are required to bring about a change in mentality at every level.

Earlier this year, changing the traditions which were followed for nearly 400 years, the Parsuram temple in Jaunsar Bawar region (Uttarakhand) allowed entry of Dalits and women.

Last year, for the first time, a housewife, Anita Shetye, became the chairperson of the the world-famous Shani Shingnapur Temple Trust.
