Haji Ali case: Prefer not to interfere, era of intolerance, says Bombay High Court

The petitioners argued their matter was not necessarily religious but that of “gender parity”. The court posted the petition for further hearing on December 15.

The Bombay High Court Tuesday said this was an “era of intolerance” while hearing a plea about the ban on women entering the sanctum sanctorum of Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai. Stating that courts generally refrain from interfering in religious matters, the HC urged the parties to amicably settle the dispute.

“This is an era of intolerance. When it comes to religious matters, people become very sensitive. This is why we normally prefer not to interfere,” said Justice V M Kanade.
