The Bombay High Court Thursday hearing the matter relating to the ban on women from entering the sanctum sanctorum of Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai said it would give its judgment on June 28.
The court asked the petitioner’s lawyer to place on record order, if any, passed by the Supreme Court on the entry of women to Sabarimala temple in Kerala.
A petition filed in the Supreme Court had sought entry for all women and girls in the Sabarimala temple which, as a practice, does not allow girls after attaining puberty to enter the premises. The temple, however, allows those women who have reached the menopause stage.
The court also asked the petitioner to place on record the recent High Court order on Shani Shingnapur temple, which had said women should be allowed entry into temples.
