First time ever! Women allowed to pray at Aishbagh Eidgah

Lucknow, July 07 (ANI): In a first, women were allowed to offer Eid prayers from a separate dedicated enclosure in Lucknow's Aishbagh Eidgah on Thursday morning.

This is the city's main mosque and according to reports, the move comes at a time when instances of women being denied entry to Haji Ali Durgah and sanctum sanctorum at Shani temple in Maharashtra have made headlines with women organisations demanding equal rights on access to places of worship at par with their male counterparts.
