She said it was a blot on the democracy. She added that patriarchy was another main reason because of which such practices still existed. Echoing similar sentiments, Delhi Commission for Women's former chief Barkha Shukla said there was absolutely no reason for barring women from the temple. Such practices are man-made and it should be changed over the period of time.
