The Supreme Court today reserved its order on a batch of petitions seeking review of the verdict allowing the entry of women of all age groups into the Sabarimala shrine in Kerala. 
   
A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi heard submissions on behalf of parties including the Kerala government, Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB), Nair Service Society (NSS) and others and said that it would pronounce its order as to whether to review the judgement or not.

The counsel for the Kerala government told the constitution bench that no ground was made out in any of the petitions seeking review of its September 28, 2018 verdict. 
 
The apex court was seized of as many as 64 petitions including review plea.

Former Attorney General and senior advocate K Parasaran, appearing for the NSS, assailed the majority verdict, saying Article 15 of the Constitution throws open for public secular institutions of the country but it doesn't deal with religious institutions. 

Travancore Dewasom Board, which runs the Sabarimala temple, supports the Supreme Court verdict allowing all women inside the shrine.
