Haji ali dargahThe Bombay High Court will pronounce its judgement on Public Interest Litigation (PIL) challenging the decision of Haji Ali Trust to ban the entry of women in the sanctum sanctorum of the historic Dargah on June 28th.

The Haji Ali Dargah bans entry of women in sanctum sanctorum irrespective of their age.

The trustees of the Dargah had told the court earlier that entry of women in close proximity to the grave of a male Muslim saint is considered as a grievous sin in Islam.

However, Petitioner Raju More, however, contended that as per Haji Ali’s website, no one is buried inside the tomb, hence, it is not a graveyard of a saint.
