Trupti Desai Stopped From Entering Shani Shingnapur | Detained By Police

A day after Bombay High Court held that entry to temples was a fundamental right of women, scores of women activists on Saturday (April 2) made a bid to storm the inner sanctum of Shani Shinganapur temple in Maharashtra to break the ban but they were stopped by scores of villagers. Upset at her attempt being foiled, Trupti Desai, who led the Bhumata Ranragini Brigade, said she would file an FIR against Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis if he fails to honour the Bombay High Court order facilitating entry of females to places of worship. Vowing to intensify the campaign for gender justice after the tense faceoff, Desai said a police complaint would be also filed against those who prevented the activists from entering the core area of the shrine in Ahmednagar district. The high court yesterday held that entry to temples was a fundamental right of women and it was the State’s fundamental duty to protect it. On reaching the temple, Desai and her followers tried to scale the sacred platform but members of the local resistance group and temple officials pushed them away.
