But the horrible memories of those days still linger in the minds of every devotee who fought to ensure that the Sabarimala traditions were not broken by a bunch of atheists.

Horrible, because this was a very rare occasion, when a ruling atheistic state government decided to use its entire might to break the traditions of a popular temple. Millions of devotees were disturbed and hurt.

THREAD: In today’s hearing in Supreme Court on #Hijab, @MNizamPasha for the petitioners made brilliant arguments

1. There is a conflict between SC judgements on whether only essential religious practices are protected or if all sincere beliefs are protected by Article 25 Image
2. Article 25 guarantees every individual freedom to practice their faith. Recently, the 5 judge bench in review of the #Sabarimala judgement said that there is a conflict between Shirur Mutt & Dargah Committee cases that has to be resolved by 9 judges
3. Whether or not the ‘essentiality test’ has any place in Indian jurisprudence is now pending decision before 9 judges. How then can the present 2 judge bench decide this issue without referring the matter to a larger bench?

LIVE THREAD {Supreme Court verdict in the Shree Padmanabhaswamy Temple Treasure Case }

A two bench of SC headed by J. UU Lalit will decide whether the Vault B of the ancient temple could be opened despite tales of "danger" surrounding it?

Justices UU Lalit and Indu Malhotra will decide if there is a need to set up an autonomous devaswom board, like the one for #Sabarimala temple, which manages temples and has nominees from community as well state government impacting the rights of the royal family too.
J Lalit reads out the verdict:

We allow the appeal of the royal family of Travancore. Death does not effect Shebaitship of the Travancore Family. The bench gives a nod for constituting a committee headed by the district judge of Trivandrum.

2. The book was written over a period of 3 years from 2016-18 to address larger concerns that were raised regarding Hindu perceptions of #Menstruation in the context of #Sabarimala practice.
3. The study took me deep into not only the #menstruation practice of #Hinduism, but also of Buddhism, Jainism, & Sikhism; Abrahamic religions like Judaism, Christianity, & Islam, and ancient but long-extinct civilizations like Greece, Rome, Egypt, & Mesopotamians. #Sabarimala
