14

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday has declined to pass any order on safety of women entering Sabarimala temple in Kerala.

The two women activists had sought a direction to the Kerala government to ensure safe entry of women in the Sabarimala temple under police protection.

The apex court said the issue was “very emotive” and it did not want the situation to become “explosive”.

A bench, headed by Chief Justice S A Bobde, said the “balance of convenience” required that no orders are passed in the mater today as the issue had already been referred to a seven-judge bench.
