Maharashtra Govt. Favors Lifting The Ban Of Women From Entering ‘Haji Ali’ Shrine

The ban on women from entering ‘Haji Ali’ shrine has been doing the internet rounds for quite some time. Maharashtra Government has been quick with a positive response. 

They stand by lifting the ban on the entry of women unless the controlling authority proves that the measure has been put in place as a part of its religious practice concerning the Quran.

The Durgah board countered with a statement that women have been barred from entering since it houses the tomb of a male saint. Apparently, it is sinful for a woman to touch a male saint or his tomb in Islam.

Petitioner Raju More argued that no one was buried in the tomb. “I also gave the court a printout of what is officially mentioned on the Haji Ali’s website in support of my argument,”

Both sides have been given two weeks to present proofs to support their argument.
