Bindu Ammini moves SC seeking entry for women of all ages in Sabarimala temple
New Delhi: Activist Bindu Ammini has moved a petition in the Supreme Court seeking entry for women of all ages in Sabarimala temple. She also sought to immediately stop Kerala police from checking the age of women trekking to Sabarimala.
Moreover, she pointed out that the minority verdict, which referred the Sabarimala women entry review petitions for the consideration of a higher bench, had directed to provide widespread publicity for the verdict through print and visual media. Bindu also sought the apex court’s direction to Kerala government to take action in this regard.
Earlier, Bindu Ammini had said that she would file a contempt of court petition against the Kerala government and its Chief Secretary. However, her present petition is not a contempt of court.
In the present scenario, the petition will come up before the apex court before Christmas holidays. The petition is likely to be considered before December 17, according to sources form the SC registry. However, Chief Justice Sharad Arvind Bobde will take a final decision in this regard.
