It is very sad to see that when there are many real and hurtful incidents happening against women in various parts of India, the Sabarimala women petitioners have managed to find time, money and other resources to indulge in a court case where not a single woman is getting hurt.
In the name of administering gender justice and to uphold order in the society, the courts and thereby the law- makers want to effect permanent change in the human condition.
Not just Sabarimala, but there is no specific sanction in any Hindu scriptures to impose gender bias in Temples: did supreme court not review Hindu scriptures before passing its judgement?
The society would be better served if ‘certain’ minds while still being given a space in the society is not allowed to muddy the waters or create schisms
It cannot be denied that freedom of religion is the inalienable and sacred of human rights, which is provided by our constitution as a fundamental right.
Why is Hinduism portrayed the way it is?
