Considering the writ petition filed by Indian Young Lawyers Association, Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, Justice R Banumati and Justice Ashok Bhushan, referred the case to a larger Constitutional Bench.
The top court has also raised six questions on the issue that it wants the constitution bench to consider.
It will also examine whether the fundamental rights of women are being infringed upon by the imposition of a ban on the entry of women between the ages of 10 and 50 by the temple authorities. In November previous year, after the Left government took charge in Kerala, there was a U-turn by the state government from its earlier stance and the affidavit stated that it was ready to allow women of all ages to enter Sabarimala. In all other Ayyappa temples in Kerala, other parts of the country and overseas, women are allowed entry without any discrimination.
The earlier UDF government's affidavit before the Supreme Court had supported the temple's tradition that the deity's form is that of a Naisthak Bramhachari who observes celibacy and therefore, young women should not worship in the temple.
