Abstract

on 28th September,2018, the Hon’ble Supreme Court delivered a 4:1 landmarks judgment in Indian young lawyers Association Vs. State of Kerala throwing open the doors of the Sabarimala Temple to women of all ages by overturning a country’s- old ban on menstruating women praying at the hills shrine. The main opinion shared by Chief Justice of India, Dipak Misra and Justice A.M. Khanwilkar, said the prohibition reduced freedom of religion to a ‘dead letter’, and the ban was a smear on the individual dignity of women. The Chief Justice of India added that “relation with the creator is a transcending one. Physiological and biological barriers created by rigid social dogma have no place in this “. On the contrary, Justice Indu Malhotra opined that “ Judicial review of religious practices ought not to be undertaken as the Court cannot impose its morality or rationality with respect to the form of worship of a deity. Doing so would negate the freedom to practice one’s religion according to one’s faith and beliefs. It would amount to rationalizing religion”. Further, much heated debate is going on for and against on the judgment across the country besides processions. On 13th November,2018, the Hon’ble Supreme Court rejected to stay on its judgment. Albeit, it agrees to hear against the review petitions and the matter is posted to January,22nd,2019 by reckoning the prevailing terse and tense conditions across the country. Against this back drop, an exertion has been initiated to focus a bird’s eye view on the background of the controversy, long battle of the chronological events, highlights of the judgment, for and against arguments on the judgment, review of the judgment followed by suggestions and a logical conclusion
