From Sabrimala Temple to Haji Ali Dargah, women are not allowed to worship. Sabrimala temple board chief and Congress leader Prayar Gopalakrishnan recently said, "The day there will be a machine to detect 'right time' for women to enter temples, that day women will be allowed in the temple." The comment has sparked widespread outrage with #HappyToBleed going viral on the internet. On We The People, we debate: Why do orthodoxies stand between women and worship? Why should women's monthly period mean a full stop? And why is menstruation still a taboo in 21st century India?
