Hindu dharma doesn’t practice gender discrimination
New Delhi. November 14, 2019: On Sabarimala issue Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) today said that the Unique Tradition of a unique Temple is not Gender discrimination. VHP secretary general Shri Milind Parande said that Hindu dharma doesn’t practice gender discrimination and the Sabarimala case is nowhere related to any gender discrimination but in a true sense, it relates to the unique tradition of a unique temple.
On the 3:2 majority ruling of the apex court to send the case to a larger bench, Shri Parande expressed hope that the larger bench will also think whether the judiciary should interfere in an integral part of a religion?
Out of many temples of Lord Ayyappa, only Sabarimala has a limited age-related (10 to 50 years) restrictions because of its unique nature and traditions. Lakhs of women devotees have faith in the temple tradition and protested in huge numbers in support of it. We are hopeful that justice would be delivered upholding the religious rights and pious traditions of Hindus.
