New Delhi and Supreme Court are on litmus test once again on religious ground. Sentiments of Islam following people could take a different turn by November 5 when Centre is asked by the apex court to response on a plea seeking entry of women in mosques as the practice is believed to be unconstitutional and violating the fundamental rights to equality, life as well as gender justice.

The Supreme Court had earlier issued notices to parties including National Commission for Women, urban ministry of Law and Justice and Minority Affairs, and urban ministry of Women and Child Welfare.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and comprising of justices SA Nazeer and SA Bobde has also ordered similar notices to be served on the Maharashtra State Board of Wakf, All India Muslim Personal Law Board and Central Wakf Council. Copies of the petition will also be attached with the notices.

The plea was filed a Pune-based couple, Yasmeen Zuber Ahmad Peerzade and Zuber Ahmad Nazir Ahmad Peerzade. The hearing is scheduled for November 5.

The two are seeking direction issued by court to the Muslim bodies and government authorities for the entry of Muslim women in mosquest across the country to offer namaz.

Lawyer Rajat Nair is representing the Centre in the case and he has confirmed to have accepted the notice.

The plea read, “Permit Muslim women to enter through the main door of mosques and have an Islamic right to visual and auditory access to the musalla.”
