Review petition to be filed in Supreme Court, in Sabarimala temple case

court ruled that patriarchy cannot be allowed to trump faith

After the Supreme Court verdict on the entry of women in Sabarimala temple of Kerala, well known activist Rahul Easwar has said that a review petition will be filed in a larger bench of the top court.

The latest top court verdict allows entry of women between the ages of 10 and 50 at Kerala’s famous Sabarimala Temple.

It was earlier banned by tradition.

In a four-one majority verdict, the top court today revoked restrictions on women entering the temple following a 20-year legal battle.

The court ruled that patriarchy cannot be allowed to trump faith.

Rahul Easwar is also the president of the Ayyappa Dharma Sena.

He is also the grandson of Sabarimala priest Kandararu Maheswararu.

The Ayyappa temple in Sabarimala — the subject of Friday’s ruling and considered one of the holiest for Hindus — has traditionally barred all women of menstruating age.
