Women of all ages must be allowed in Kerala's renowned Sabarimala temple, the Supreme Court ordered today, ending the ban on the entry of women between 10 and 50 years. “The practice of age restriction on women entry to Sabarimala temple can't be treated as an essential religious practice,” said the Apex Court in a majority four-one judgement. The Supreme Court observed that Article 25 of the Constitution was applicable to both men and women. The arguments in the case were concluded on August 1 and the verdict was announced on Friday.
