Haji Ali Dargah Shrine, Mumbai, India
One of Mumbai’s most iconic landmarks, which is dedicated to a 15th-century Sufi saint Pir Haji Ali Bukhari. The site, which also holds the saint’s tomb, draws between 15,000 and 20,000 daily visitors of all castes, creeds and religions, according to the organization that runs it. But in July, a women’s group visited and found the Dargah’s most sacred area, called the sanctum sanctorum, had been barred to females. The shrine’s authorities claim that it is “un-Islamic under the Sharia Law” for women to visit graves and that they were rectifying a mistake that had allowed women to enter this area.
