The Supreme Court today allowed entry of women of all ages into Sabarimala Ayyappa temple. A five judge bench led by the Chief Justice of India,Dipak Misra ordered that discrimination on the ground of gender should not be allowed.
However, the temple priest said it was a disappointing verdict.
Rahul Easwar,the president of the Ayyappa Dharma Sena said his organization would challenge the verdict and go for a review petition.
Pandalam family,the traditional family who maintain the rituals of the holy temple in Kerala for centuries also spoke against the verdict.
Even though some politicians and parties supported the verdict many other devotees are still unhappy about the courts order.
Many social media activists are raising the issue .
