Sabarimala: Mobs attack women near India Hindu temple

Crowds of agitated protesters in Kerala attacked female devotees, many of whom turned back as a result.

Several people including an old woman were injured as crowds threw stones at vehicles and attacked police officers.

…But while most Hindu temples allow women to enter as long as they are not menstruating, the Sabarimala temple was unusual in that it was one of the few that do not allow women in a broad age group to enter at all.

This was overturned by the Supreme Court last month, with judges observing that “the right to practice religion is available to both men and women”.
