Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Thursday appreciated the stand of the Kerala government in upholding the Supreme Court verdict that allowed all women to pray at the Sabarimala temple.
The High Court was hearing a bunch of petitions demanding that the status quo be maintained at the temple until the apex court hears the various review petitions. But the High Court said that the state government had only abided by what the apex court had directed and that the state government cannot wait till the review petitions were heard.
But representatives of 126 various Hindu groups and the BJP maintained that the temple traditions — keeping away women in the age group of 10 to 50 — should remain. (IANS)
