#SaveOurSabarimala campaign strikes again, a year after historic Sabarimala verdict
Thiruvananthapuram, Sep 28: It has been a year since the historic Sabarimala judgement by the Supreme Court paving the way for the entry of women of all ages into the shrine saying the ban amounted to gender discrimination.
The judgement was passed by 4:1 majority by a bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and judges D Y Chanrachud, A M Khanwilkar, R F Nariman. Indu Malhotra, the sole woman on the bench and the author had a dissenting opinion.
The famous temple had banned women between 10 to 50 years of age inside its premises.
A year since the verdict, women's groups in Kerala are still determined to ensure that their hard-fought gains don't wither away.
The hashtag #SaveOurSabarimala has gone viral, where twitterati has urged to respect ancient hindu traditons, and do not impose political agenda.
Enough has happened to #Hindus in the past few centuries. Today, all the rights have been given to minorities only and we Hindus are left to see the #tamasha of destroying our culture.#SaveOurSabarimala pic.twitter.com/HEUQCDQtHt#SaveOurSabarimala— Raja Arya (@RajaAry70340266) September 28, 2019

On this day (28 Sept) in 2018, the Supreme Court opened the door of Sabarimala temple in Kerala to women devotees and held that century old practice of not allowing women in age group of 10-50 inside the temple is illegal and unconstitutional.#SaveOurSabarimala #Sabarimala— मयुर (@TawateMayur) September 28, 2019
