Hindu tem­ple sparks women’s protest

The Observer - - World -

A new stand­off be­tween Hindu tra­di­tion­al­ists and In­dian po­lice over a shrine is loom­ing, with 560 women ex­pected to visit when it re­opens on Satur­day. In­dia’s supreme court has ruled that all women should be al­lowed into the Sabari­mala hill­top tem­ple in Ker­ala, and not just those un­der 10 or over 50. But when the tem­ple re­opened in mid-Oc­to­ber, vi­o­lent protests broke out.
