Taking forward their fight for women’s right to worship and enter temples like Shani Shingnapur and Trimbakeshwar temple, Bhoomata Ranragini Brigade’s Trupti Desai is now all set to enter Mumbai’s Haji Ali dargah on Thursday amidst protest  and tight security.

Desai has written a letter to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat saying that Indian women also voted for Modi government and it is the duty of the NDA government to lokk after women’s rights  and said RSS also support s equality for women.

A group of human rights activists, including Trupti Desai of the Shani Shingnapur fame, will hold a peaceful dharna outside Haji Ali Dargah on Thursday .

“We will have a peaceful protest outside the dargah. We will not enter the inner sanctum of the temple but will go till where men and women are allowed to enter,” said Desai. “It is believed that whatever you ask for at Haji Ali dargah comes true, and we shall ask for equal treatment for women.”

Shiv Sena leader Haji Arafat said he would not allow her to touch the mazar-e-sharif at the Hazi Ali Dargah and termed it as a conspiracy meant to disturb Mumbai’s peaceful environment.

Desai even  asked Bollywood actors Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan to lend support to their cause.

“I think Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan should state their stand on what we are trying to achieve here, on our cause… That way I believe that their fan following will join us and support us in our fight for equality,” she told

Haji Ali dargah does not allow women to enter into the sanctum sanctorum,the inner chamber of dargah .

In February ,the Maharashtra government favoured lifting of the ban on entry of women into the sanctum sanctorum of the Haji Ali shrine unless its controlling authority proves the measure has been put in place as part of its religious practice with reference to Quran.

The BJP-led government’s view was conveyed to the court, hearing a petition challenging the ban, by state’s advocate general Shrihari Ane

Gandhinagar Jan 20: Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, while interacting with the media on Tuesday, said that the government has applied for a patent to change the nomenclature of dragon fruit to ‘Kamalam’.

According to the CM, the word dragon for the fruit sounded inappropriate and so the Gujarat government had decided for the fruit to be called as Kamalam.

While interacting with the media on Tuesday during the launch of the Chief Minister Horticulture Development Mission, Rupani said, “We have applied for the patent of the Dragon fruit to be called as Kamalam. But as of now, we the Gujarat government have decided to call the fruit as Kamalam.”

“Even though the fruit is known as dragon fruit, it doesn’t sound appropriate. The word Kamalam is a Sanskrit word and the fruit does have the shape of the lotus, so we have decided to call it Kamalam, and there’s nothing political about it,” Rupani added.

According to the CM, the fruit has long since been grown as a form of cactus in the country. “Nobody has to be alarmed by the word Kamalam,” Rupani added.

It should be noted that the lotus is the symbol of the BJP and the state BJP headquarters in Gandhinagar is also named ‘Shri Kamalam’.

Tractor March Delhi

Gurugram, Jan 20: The Sanyukt Kisan Morcha in Gurugram has announced that they will conduct a tractor rally ‘rehearsal’ in Gurugram on Wednesday ahead of Republic Day, in support of the farmers’ protests against the three farm laws.

SKM president Chaudhary Santokh Singh said that on Wednesday the rehearsal of the tractor rally will begin from the Bajghera flyover and will end at the protest site on the Delhi-Jaipur highway.

About 100 tractors will take part in the rehearsal. All tractors will have Morcha members present and will carry the national flag.

“The central government is aware of the flaws in the agricultural laws but is not ready to accept its mistake and is continuously harassing the innocent farmers at several borders of the national capital. The government must let go of its arrogant behaviour and roll back the black laws,” Singh said.

He said that on January 26, the farmers will join Republic Day by affixing the tricolour in front of their tractors and will proceed towards the national capital if permitted.

The protesting farmers said that it will be good if the Centre repeals the farm laws immediately, because the farmer movement has become a mass movement and people of other classes have also started supporting the farmers.
