PIL in Delhi HC to allow women into Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia Dargah
| Friday | 7th December, 2018
Female law students have moved a plea in the Delhi high court for seeking directions to the Centre and other authorities to permit entry of women into the Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia Dargah.
The petitioners are law students from Pune.
When the petitioner visited the shrine on November 27 to offer prayers, the law students came to know of the bar on women’s entry at the dargah.
The public interest litigation has claimed that there is a notice put up outside the ‘dargah’ clearly stating in English and Hindi that women are not allowed inside.
The petitioners have quarrelled that when the Supreme Court has allowed females of all ages to go to Sabarimala shrine in Kerala, women were being discriminated against by being prohibited from entering the dargah.
