With several applications being filed in the Bombay High Court seeking recall of an earlier HC order that said women could not be prohibited from entering places of worship where men got unhindered access, the court said it would hear next Monday the issue of maintainability of their applications.

The court questioned the locus standi of the applicants, considering the public interest litigation that sought entry of women into temples where they were prohibited had been disposed of. The court also asked if the applicants could intervene in the matter if they were not party in the PIL.
“If anybody is hurt then the main remedy is to challenge the order. But it is up to you to seek reverse of the order,” said Chief Justice D H Waghela.
