Activists react as women stopped on way to Shani temple

She stated that the temple's administration should adhere to the Indian Constitution and thus allow the women to enter the temple and offer their prayers. Another woman activist Pramila Nesargi echoing similar sentiments said it was strange that women do not get equal rights with respect to the other gender in a country where women goddesses are worshipped.
