Kerala High Court Has Granted Permission To Join His Father For A 9-Year-Old Girl To Visit Sabarimala
- The high court has granted permission for a nine-year-old child to join her father on his Sabarimala trip this month.
- After hearing a case filed by the girl from Pattathanam in Kollam through lawyer Nirmal V Nair, a division bench comprised of Justice Shaji P Chaly and Justice A Badharudeen issued an interim order.
The daughter had argued in her petition that she should be permitted to accompany her father on the pilgrimage because she won't be able to do so for the next four decades due to religious practises and beliefs.
Despite the opposition of the government and the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB), the court decided that an interim order allowing the petitioner to join her father to Sabarimala Darshan on August 23 could be issued. The government, state police chief, and TDB were all instructed by the court to make the appropriate arrangements to comply with the injunction.
