The honourable supreme court today referred the petitions pertaining to 2018 Sabrimala judgement delivered by the court itself to 7 judge bench, the bench will re-examine various issues other than Sabrimala like women entry into the mosque, and female genital mutilation practice in Dawoodi Bohra community.
The apex court today unanimously agreed to refer the Sabrimala 2018 judgement to a larger seven member bench, while a split decision of 3:1 came pertaining to review its judgment given in 2018. The majority verdict by justice ranjan gogoi, justice Indu Malhotra, and AM khanwilkar decided to keep pending the pleas pertaining to entry of women in Sabrimala 2018 supreme court judgement.
The apex court also observed that women entry to holy places is not just limited to Sabrimala, but also in many other religions as well. However the court did not said anything adverse nor it cleared the uncertainty on women entry into holy hill-top shrine of Sabrimala.
The uncertainty still remains as the shrine is scheduled to open on november 17, although kerala government has hailed and supported the Supreme court’s verdict on Sabrimala, it urged the court to trash all review petitions.
