SC refers Sabarimala case to a larger bench


The Supreme Court on Thursday, while hearing a batch of review petitions challenging its earlier order, has referred the Sabarimala case to a larger bench.

The apex court bench by a majority of 3:2, has referred the review petitions to a larger seven-judge constitution bench. Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman and Justice DY Chandrachud gave dissent judgement.

Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi while reading out the verdict said, “The entry of women into places of worship is not limited to this temple, it is involved in the entry of women into mosques and Parsi temples.” He further added that the issue includes an interplay of the width of article 25 (worship) and the right to equality.
