The Supreme Court on Monday said it will only hear the questions referred in the review order passed by it on November 14 in the Sabarimala temple case.
A nine-judge bench headed by Chief Justice SA Bobde said that it was not considering review pleas in the Sabarimala case.
“We are not hearing review pleas of Sabarimala case. We are considering issues referred to by a 5-judge bench earlier,” the bench said.
There are more than 50 review petitions, which had challenged the judgement of the Supreme Court allowing the entry of women of all ages in the Sabarimala temple in Kerala. The petitions are pending before the Supreme Court for final disposal.
As the top court commenced hearing on issues related to discrimination against women in various religions and at religious places, it asked the lawyers from all sides in the Sabarimala, Muslim women, Parsi and Dawoodi Bohra cases to sit together and decide on what issues can be framed.
