Women permitted in mosques, AIMPLB tells SC

The Supreme Court was advised in an affidavit by the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) that it is acceptable for women to enter mosques to perform “namaz” there, AIMPLB informed this through a press release on social media.

The board asserts that the management committee must, if at all feasible, segregate individuals on the premises to address the free mixing of genders in the same line or common area, which is against Islamic law.

AIMPLB said in the statement, “Considering the said religious texts, doctrines and religious beliefs of the followers of Islam, it is submitted that entry of women into mosques for offering namaz inside mosques is permitted.”

The board further urged the Muslim community to keep in mind the need for enough space for women while building new mosques.
