Haji Ali Should Allow Women to Enter Dargah Says Trupti Desai | Exclusive

After scoring victory for women’s right to enter Shani Shingnapur and Trimbakeshwar temples, Bhumata Brigade chief Trupti Desai will today (April 28) try to enter the core area of Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai where women are not allowed. There is an unprecedented security outside the Haji Ali Dargah. Desai has been facing stiff opposition. While some netas have issued threats, there are women who are standing outside the dargah to oppose her. Speaking with TIMES NOW, Desai says that the Dargah Board which imposed restrictions in the year 20122 on the entry of women should lift it. The Maharashtra government had in February this year favoured the entry of women into the Haji Ali Dargah. The state government had then said before the Bombay High Court that unless the Dargah Board is able to prove that ban is part of their religious practice with reference to Quran, women should be allowed to enter the sanctum sanctorum of Haji Ali. The Dargah Board had said that the sanctum sanctorum of the dargah houses the grave of a male saint and in Islam it is sin for women to touch a male saint, and hence, women are barred from touching the tomb.
