Sufi shrine Haji Ali Dargah has restricted the entry of women

According to latest news, the Mumbai’s Sufi shrine Haji Ali Dargah has restricted the entry of women. It is said in reports that the management of Sufi shrine said that the decision is unchangeable.

Hundreds of thousands of devotees come to visit the Sufi shrine Haji Ali Dargah.

Now, the management has ordered that women will not be allowed to enter the sanctum sanctorum housing the tomb. The tomb is of 15th century Sufi saint Pir Haji Ali Shah Bukhari.

Talking to media, the trustees said that it is “un-Islamic under the Sharia Law” for women to visit the tomb. But, women can roam around the dargah’s compound.

Talking to media, a trustee and noted criminal lawyer, Rizwan Merchant said, “They can offer their prayers, do namaaz and offer shawls and flowers. We are only requesting our sisters not to enter inside the dargah.”

Sufi shrine Haji Ali Dargah is situated on a bed of rocks into the Arabian Sea and off the coast of Worli in south central Mumbai.

On the other hand, the decision of the management is also facing some criticism from some group.
