Respect Sabarimala's traditions

Since it is a democratic country, anybody has the right to take any issues to the court. The court should consider the seriousness and sensitivity of the matter. Especially in case of temples, the court should understand the reason behind the rituals and practices followed and the court should abide by it. In the case of Sabarimala, the personal feeling is that the court should stand by the practice that the women between the ages of 10-50 should not be allowed.

In the case of Sabarimala, the personal feeling is that the court should stand by the practice that the women between the ages of 10-50 should not be allowed. If the court gives a different verdict, then it will not only affect the sanctity of the shrine and also the hearts of lots of believers of Lord Ayyappa which includes women devotees who abide by the tradition.
