Bombay HC allows Jain devotees to use temple dining halls

  • The Bombay High Court allowed Shree Trust Atman Kamal Labdhisurishwarji Jain Gyanmandir Trust to use their dining halls for 9 days to perform the Ayambil Tap ritual for a specific period of time.

  • A Bench of Justices SJ Kathawalla and VG Bisht argued that by following certain Standard Operating Procedures ( SOPs), the Government has allowed restaurants and bars to start their business with 50 percent capacity, the Trust can be permitted to use dining halls for 9 days with SOPs in place since it did not form congregation through the procession.

  • From October 23 to October 31, between 10 am to 3 pm, the Court allowed the Trust to use its dining halls only for the execution of the rite of Ayambil Tap by having 40 Jain devotees per hour, thus limiting the same to 200 Jain devotees in 5 hours.
