AIDWA Condemns Unjust Ban


The following is the statement issued by AIDWA on November 6:


THE All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) expresses outrage against the decision by the Dargah management to prevent women from entering the Haji Ali dargah sanctorum.  It seems that this decision is to be imposed on other dargahs in the city as well.


Dargahs are open to all irrespective of creed.  It is unbelievable that women are now to be banned from entering the sanctorum.


AIDWA demands that this unjust ban be lifted.
