Will visit Sabarimala temple soon, says Trupti Desai

Amidst strong sentiments against the Supreme Court’s verdict allowing women in the 10-50 age group into the Sabarimala Temple in Kerala, gender equality activist Trupti Desai said on Saturday that she was still determined to visit it.

“We will announce a date very soon to visit the Sabarimala Temple as the apex court has upheld the fundamental rights of women… There should be no attempt to stop us because we now have equal rights,” Ms. Desai said while speaking to a Malayalam TV channel in Mumbai. She has played a major role in opening up to women shrines like Mumbai’s Haji Ali dargah that were hitherto closed to them.

Reacting sharply to the remarks of the activist who is also the founder of the Pune-based Bhumata Brigade, Kerala Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President P.S.Sreedharan Pillai said that Ms.. Desai should not challenge the emotions and feelings of the devotees of the temple dedicated to Lord Ayyappa.
