SC Opens Up The Gates Of Sabarimala Temple For Women, But Did Humanity Really Win This Battle?

Published on 28 September, 2018 at 4:57 pm By

From news portals to social media, the buzz is all about the latest decision by the Supreme Court of India. Yes, Sabarimala temple will finally open its doors for the women following the order passed by the apex court of India. SC said that the temple in Kerala is open to women of all ages. The verdict further pointed out that there should be no discrimination on basis of gender. While we welcome and rejoice this decision, it also leaves us with a crucial question.

Sabarimala temple is not the only place where discrimination among worshipers is witnessed. It won’t be unjustified to point out that Hinduism is not the only religion that creates these obstacles.

 

 

A look around and we see people are discriminated or barred from entering different religious places. And, that is done in name of differences in their caste, creed, sex, and what not. Here the question is, isn’t humanity the religion above all?

Pondering on the quote, ‘before becoming a Muslim, a Sikh, a Hindu or a Christian let’s become human first,’ I wonder whether the SC’s verdict on Sabarimala temple is really a win or not.

Considering the fact that we are human before anything, shouldn’t the restricted entry of any human into any religious place be unconstitutional?

Understandably, the fierce protectors of religious sentiments will never agree to this simple reality. Hence, it will possibly never be possible for a law to exist that doesn’t differential between worshipers on basis of anything.

Of course, in this regard, we can dig into many theories regarding human evolution, religion, and structure of society.  But, let’s keep that for another day. For today, let us ask ourselves, what role are we playing to create a world where humanity stands taller than religion?
