In Nov 2019, a narrow 3:2 majority of the #SupremeCourt decided to keep the #Sabarimala review petitions pending.

It held that overarching questions pertaining to #ReligiousFreedom & #GenderEquality must first be decided by a larger 9-judge Bench.
The 9-judge Bench of the #SupremeCourt will begin hearing arguments on the overarching questions next week, on 13 January.

#Sabarimala #SabarimalaReview #SabarimalaTemple
There are several key cases that will be effected by the outcome of this 9-judge Bench matter:

A) Yasmeen Zuber v. UOI - Do practices prohibiting the entry of women into mosques violate the right to #equality?

Big news: A day after #WomenWallKerala (officials said 5million women protested for gender equality) Bindu Ammini, 42 & Kanakadurga, 41, made history by becoming 1st women to enter Sabarimala temple since Supreme Court lifted ban on women under 50 in Sept…

So, 2 women..came through the staff door.. & hung around for 2 minutes.

And this scares organized religion so much that Sabarimala has to saved !?
From the start, #SabarimalaTemple has been an episode of out & out war on women. There is no other way to look at this.

Women shouldnt have to sneak into temples at 3 am or wear helmets to pray to God.
This iconic photo of being escorted by police to a desegregated schools comes to mind every time I see police trying to escort women into Sabarimala. And failing.

Shame on #Sabarimala Devaswom board.

Beyond the Veil - The #Ayyappan Sankalpa — A Long Thread !
The #SabarimalaTemple is many centuries-old and hosts an ancient deity, Sastha — #Ayyappan the main Vigraha (idol) of the temple, the deity is worshipped in the form of a Naishtika Brahmachari
This temple is not a prayer hall but is an energy centre; the Vigraha of #Ayyappan is not the representation of a God who is omnipresent, but as a source of energy (Chaithanya) from a mystical dimension.
