Trupti Desai Set to Enter Mumbai’s Haji Ali Dargah

Bhumata Brigade Chief Trupti Desai will be marching to Mumbai’s iconic Haji Ali dargah on Thursday (April 28) to break centuries old tradition. On April 20, ‘Haji Ali For All’ Forum was launched by Desai along with several activists, NGOs and social groups to fight for entry of women to the shrine. A “peaceful movement” will be launched at Haji Ali on April 28. The Maharashtra Government had in February supported the entry of women to the Haji Ali Dargah. The Government had told the Bombay High Court that the entry of women cannot be prohibited. The court had asked the Devendra Fadnavis-led BJP Government to give its opinion on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) challenging the decision of the Haji Ali Trust to ban the entry of women in the sanctum sanctorum of the dargah. A trustee of the Dargah, Rizwan Merchant, had earlier backed the decision not to allow women to enter inside the inner sanctum, saying their entry is prohibited for their own safety.
