The Supreme Court has referred the petition challenging the ban on women of 10 to 50 age group from entering the Sabrimala temple in Kerala to a larger bench.
A division bench headed by Justice S B Sinha, after hearing the contentions of Kerala government and the petitioner, referred the matter to a three judge bench.
The bench passed the order while hearing a petition filed by the Indian Young Lawyers Association contending that barring women of 10 to 50 years age group from entering into the temple is violation of women's fundamental rights and it should be quashed.
