Trupti Desai almost breaks another glass ceiling

Thu, May 12, 2016, 11:20 AM
Women's temple entry activist Trupti Desai on Thursday almost broke another glass ceiling by offering prayers at Haji Ali Darga on the seashore in Mumbai. She was, however, not allowed into the sanctum snctorum of the darga.

The Bhumata Brigade founder braved the warnings by the clergy and offered prayers at the darga, but she kept off the holiest place in the shrine. The police force was present in strength at the shrine.

Talking to newsmen later, Trupti expressed the hope that women would soon offer prayers from the sanctum sanctorum of Haji Ali. She prayed at the shrine specifically for the fulfillment of the wish.

Those opposing women's entry were present in strength at the darga, which caused much tension at the shrine.
