Sabarimala Temple Verdict: Shiv Sena calls for statewide strike on October 1


Mumbai, Sep 29: Shiv Sena has called for a statewide 12 hours strike on October 1 against the Supreme Court’s verdict to allow women of all ages to enter Sabarimala Temple located in Kerala.

This comes a day after, the apex court ruled that women in the age group of 10-50 could also enter the famed temple in Kerala.

In a majority 4:1 verdict, a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra said the ban on women in the menstruating age group, whose presence in the Lord Ayyappa temple was considered to be “impure”, violated their fundamental rights and the constitutional guarantee of equality.
