Women’s Entry to Sabarimala: SC Turns Down Devaswom Board Demand


New Delhi: Supreme Court, on Wednesday, turned down the argument of the Devaswom Board that the present three-member bench should not consider the issue of women’s entry into Sabarimala temple and that the case should be referred to a five-member constitution bench.

As the hearing of the parties is going on, the case cannot be referred to the constitution  bench now, the Court said.

The three-member bench of the Supreme Court had, the other day, questioned the constitutional validity of banning the entry of women into Sabarimala Temple.
