Women Prohibited From Entering Inside Nizamuddin Dargah As Maulvi Says “Dead Sufi Saints Can See Them, Naked”

Where on one hand there are movements which are trying to overthrow the age-old rituals one the other hand the new issues have crept up which hits the new level of lows. The famous Nizamuddin Dargah in Delhi prohibits women inside the shrine, however, allows them to pray, kneel, kiss outside the wall of the dargah.

When questioned why Maulvi said that women shouldn’t go to dargahs and graveyards as women can be seen naked by the dead if they’re too close to their graves. Speaking of women who were finally allowed inside the Shani  Shignapur temple he says that: “Asking ‘why’ for everything creates controversy. In this day and age of digital media, everyone wants to rake up controversy. What did those women who entered the Shani Shingnapur temple achieve except being in the news for a few days?”

Adding on the probe, he said that the tradition has been preserved for 700 years so there is no point questioning it now.

As a retort to this Alhaj Syed Nayeemuddin Niazi, a Khadim at the gender inclusive Ajmer Sharif Dargah said, “Throughout their lifetimes, they (Sufi saints) used to interact with women and heal them. Why can they not do so after death?” So apparently no such universal rule that stops women as they are happily allowed inside the shrine of Ajmer Sharif Dargah.

Well, it is 2016 and it’s high time that we leave such hogwash and move on to something which is logical.
