Trupti Desai enters Mumbai's Haji Ali

After scoring victory for women's right to enter temples, activist Trupti Desai on Thursday morning (May 12) entered Mumbai's Haji Ali Dargah to offer prayers amid tight security. "The police has cooperated with us this time. This is a fight for gender equality. We will try to visit the inner sanctum next time," she said. Desai and other women activists were earlier denied entry to the dargah last month. After her successful campaigns to break bar on entry of women in some Hindu temples like Shani Shingnapur and Trimbakeshwar, Bhumata Brigade chief Trupti Desai had taken her movement for gender equality to the famous dargah in Mumbai. She was however stopped short of going into the shrine on April 28 by protestors.
