Murali Krishnan January 11 2016

After being in cold storage for 7 years, the Supreme Court of India has restarted hearing a case concerning ban on entry of women in Sabarimala temple.

And if today’s proceedings are anything to go by, the signs are ominous for those who advocate the ban. Presiding judge Justice Dipak Misra today remarked that

“Unless you have the Constitutional right to prohibit, you can’t prohibit”.

Sabarimala, the abode of Lord . . .
