Mumbai, April 4: Against the backdrop of the Bombay High Court’s ruling giving women the equal right to pray in places of worship, the Shiv Se on Monday urged courts to keep off religious issues. “Matters of religion should not be dragged to and decided by the courts but should be resolved amicably by mutual discussions by society peers and religious seers,” an editorial in the Se mouthpiece “Saama” said. It pointed out that even today there was a debate on whether the revered saint Saibaba of Shirdi in Maharashtra was a Hindu or a Muslim but the courts cannot decide this as it was a matter of faith. Similarly, the courts cannot say with fility that Lord Ram was indeed born in Ayodhya and this should be decided by the elders in the society. (IANS)
