New Delhi: In a landmark judgement, the Supreme Court on Friday allowed the entry of women in the age group of 10 to 50 into the Sabarimala temple in Kerala.
A five-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra, passed the verdict after hearing in detail the arguments from various petitioners, including Indian Young Lawyer's Association (IYLA), respondents. ''The right to worship is given to all devotees and there can be no discrimination on the basis of gender,'' CJI Misra said, while reading out the verdict, in a jam-packed courtroom.
Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB) president A Padmakumar, said that the board will file a review petition against the Supreme Court's verdict. (UNI)
