Important: Haji Ali Dargah is again open for Muslim women!Women devotees were earlier allowed till 2011 to pray in the Haji Ali Dargah of Mumbai. The entry of the women devotees were banned in the inner sanctum of the Dargah siting various religious reasons. A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was filed on 28 July by women activists Noorjehan Niaz and Zakia Soman from the NGO named Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan, challenging the ban on the entry of women into the inner sanctum of the Haji Ali Dargah. This PIL then led to a historic judgment, by the Bombay High Court on Friday (yesterday-26th August, 2016), which signifies a shift in Indian society for a just and fair world order, where women would be treated as equal.
This is a significant judgement with far-reaching impact. Let's welcome this judgement of the Bombay High Court.
