After scoring victory for women’s right to enter Shani Shingnapur and Trimbakeshwar temples, Bhumata Brigade chief Trupti Desai will today try to enter the core area of Haji Ali Dargah in the city where women are not allowed. A local leader said they would not allow Desai to enter the sanctum sanctorum of the renowned Dargah.”We will hold a peaceful march for women’s rights at Haji Ali dargah today, pray there and later decide the future course of action,” Desai told reporters here.
“I think (Bollywood actors) Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan too should lend us support for our cause as
that will only help us in our fight for equality,” she said. 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.
