Asma Fatima, the Secretary of ‘Anjuman-e-alavi Shia Imamia Itna Ashari (Akbari) society approached the High Court claiming that Shia Muslim women were not allowed to pray in mosques and other holy places.  High Court judge Justice Nagesh Dhimapaka heard the petition on Monday

The petitioner told the Court that the committee of mutawalli of Ibadat Khana did not allow only women belonging to the Shia Community to enter the prayer halls.  In this regard, petitions have been submitted to the Waqf Board but to no avail.
