SC turns down urgent hearing on review petition of its Sabarimala Temple verdict

A three-judge bench of the Supreme Court, headed by, CJI Ranjan Gogoi on Tuesday turned down an urgent hearing of plea seeking review of its verdict in Sabarimala Temple case.

The SC bench decision came while considering the submission of Shylaja Vijayan, President of National Ayyappa Devotees Association.

The petitioner sought a stay on the SC judgment – in the Sabarimala Temple case – citing that the temple would open for monthly Pujas on October 16.

The association in its petition called the verdict as “absolutely untenable and irrational”, saying that faith cannot be judged by scientific or rationale reasons or logic.

Declining to hear the review petition filed by the Association on an urgent basis, the SC bench, which also had Justices Justices SK Kaul and KM Joseph, said that “review petitions will not be taken up before the Dussehra vacations.”

A five-judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court, headed by the retired CJI Dipak Misra, had in its 4:1 verdict ended a century-old ban on the entry of women between 10 and 50 years into the shrine. The constitution bench had ruled that women of all age groups can enter into the Sabarimala Temple.
