New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to hear an appeal against the Bombay high court verdict that lifted the ban against entry of women into the Haji Ali shrine.

A bench comprising Chief Justice T.S. Thakur, justices A.M.Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud agreed to hear the appeal.

Haji Ali Dargah Trust moved the apex court on Monday against the 26 August judgment of the high court.

Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan, a non-profit, had moved the high court, seeking entry of women into the inner precincts (mazaar) of the famous Haji Ali Dargah.

A two-judge bench of the high court, comprising justices V. M. Kanade and Revati Mohite Dhere had struck down the Dargah Trust’s ban.

The case will be heard on 7 October.
