The name which rings the bell when we say Shani Shignapur, Sabarimala and Haji Ali is Trupti Desai and Bhumata Brigade. Now is a million dollar question is what is Trupti Desai doing every day now? She couldn’t think of anything else other than entering Shani Shignapur and Sabarimala since NDA came to power. Wonder what she was doing prior to that?
I stand corrected, it is not entering these temples, because Women are allowed to enter and pray. But she wanted to enter the sanctum sanctorum of Shani temple which is an open temple without walls or roof. Women were restricted to the touching of the idol and now she made it. Sabarimala has a restriction of age for women and she gets the court order for women at any age to enter. Her job is done. She made the country so progressive by getting women permission to enter near the idol in two temples. The women were suffering as they were not allowed inside the sanctum sanctorum and women are all safe in India. She brought equality in Hinduism and made it progressive. Bravo!
She was even resisting the dress code which most of the temples follow. Every temple can have it’s own dress code for men and women and it is called discrimination.
The next step for her is to enter Haji Ali. If she continued her fight for women entry to Haji Ali mosque and Dargah, she would have got everyone’s support, including Hindus who were against her. She started ‘Haji Ali Sabke Liye’ and left without any success. All those liberals who spoke at lengths about entry into sanctum sanctorum of Shani temple, which was just may be 1 or 2 feet rstriction, are staying away from the issue. Because Haji Ali belongs to minority and any issue against the minority religious place is an attack on a ‘peaceful minority’. No one speaks a word.
If it is any temple other than Haji Ali, it would have become international issue and every Tom, Dick and Harry in the world would be talking about Hinduism being regressive.
No one asked Hindu women about the entry into Shani temple and Sabarimala. But the woman with a team can go to court and change the centuries old tradition. But few year old ban on women’s entry in Haji Ali is not to be lifted. She backed out of Haji Ali Dargah easily while she threatened to enter Shani temple from a helicopter. Those who supported her earlier are not to be seen or heard now.
The new twist in the story is that the secularists started saying she is a BJP/RSS member who is trying create communal differences and disturbing the peaceful community by making them angry. She is denied entry into Muslim Dargah and she has nothing to proceed.
