‘Black day’ for women after barred from entering Shani Shingnapur shrine
Ahmednagar, Jan 26 (ANI): Scores of women attempting to enter the premises of Shani Shingnapur temple on Tuesday were barred by the police from entering the temple’s sanctum. Women have been demanding eradication of an age-old tradition that bars women’s entry inside the temple. In November 2015, a woman had offered prayers at the popular shrine in ‘breach’ of the age-old practice of prohibiting entry of women, after which the temple committee had to suspend seven security men and the villagers to perform purification rituals.
