Women of menstruating age have never been allowed inside the Sabarimala temple, one of the largest and oldest Hindu pilgrimage centers in India.
Report says the recently appointed board president made it clear that he’s not changing the law any time soon. That is, until the temple has a scanner that literally detects whether or not women are bleeding from their vagina.
” There will be a day when a machine is invented to scan if it is the ‘right time’ (not menstruating) for a woman to enter the temple. When that machine is invented, we will talk about letting women inside,” Prayar Gopalakrishnan , the new board president, said at a press meeting.
