The Supreme Court today (October 22, 2018) said that it will consider tomorrow as to when to hear the review petitions filed against the Sabarimala verdict.
A Bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul was considering an oral plea made by Advocate Mathews Nedumpara, the counsel for National Ayyappa Devotee (Women) Association, for the urgent listing of the matter.
“We know there are 19 review petitions pending. By tomorrow we will decide when to list the matters,” the CJI Gogoi said.
On September 28, 2018, a five-judge Constitution Bench by a ratio of 4:1 had held that women of all age groups should be allowed entry in Kerala’s Sabarimala temple.
