SC sends Notice to Centre seeking Report on Prohibition of Women from Offering Prayers in Mosques

A Pune based couple, Zuber Peerzade and Yasmin Peerzade, alleged in the petition that women are prohibited from entering mosques and that several attempts to seek justice from heads of mosques on the issue proved futile. “At present, women are allowed to offer prayers at mosques under Jamat-e-Islami and Mujahid denominations, while they are barred from mosques under the predominant Sunni faction,” read the petition.
