NALSAR Lecture Series on Constitutionalism has conducted a panel discussion on 'Public Law and Access to Places of Worship - From Narasu Appa Mali to Haji Ali .
We had an amazing panel of Prof. Gerard Quinn, Prof. Faizan Mustafa, Dr. Kannan, Dr. Archana Parashar, and Dr. Vijaya Nagarajan, and . Further, Prof. Amita Dhanda would be moderating the discussion. The discussion was of great academic relevance to us especially in the aftermath of the Bombay High Court's decision holding the ban on entry of women to the sanctum sanctorum of the the Haji Ali Dargah, as unconstitutional. Interestingly, decades earlier the same High Court had held fundamental rights to be subservient to personal law.
