Kerala HC rejects Hindu Mahasabha’s petition demanding entry of Muslim women in mosques

Then Hindus may wonder that if Supreme Court can hear petition about Sabarimala issue, filed by a Muslim headed NGO; then why Kerala HC can’t hear petition filed Hindus demanding entry of Muslim women in mosques ! – Editor, Hindujagruti

New Delhi : Kerala High Court has rejected the petition filed by Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha demanding that Muslim women should be allowed entry into mosques for prayers after the Supreme Court granted permission to Hindu women to enter in Sabarimala temple. The HC observed that the case does not have any connection with the Sabarimala case and also no Muslim women had come forward with the petition. The judge also observed that the petitioners did not produce enough evidence to prove that Muslim women are not allowed entry into mosques.

A division bench of Chief Justice Rishikesh Roy and AKJ Nambiar observed that the petitioner had failed to establish that Muslim women are denied entry to Kerala mosques.

Swamy Dethathreya Sai Swaroop Nath, state president of Akhila Bharatha Hindu Maha Sabha, Kerala unit had filed the petition.

Meanwhile, getting inspiration from the SC verdict on Sabarimala, a Kerala-based Muslim women’s rights group is planning to approach the apex court, demanding the entry of women in all mosques across the country.

NISA, a progressive women’s forum, will soon move the top court. The group will not just seek permission for women to offer prayers in the mosques, but also fight for appointing them as ‘imams’ (clerics), PTI reported.

The outfit has been campaigning for gender equality within Islam and also wants to curb the practices of polygamy and ‘nikah-halala’, a law under which a Muslim woman who wants to remarry her former husband can do so by marrying another person and consummating the wedding with him.
