After successfully entering Shani Shingnapur and Trimbakeshwar temples, Bhumata Brigade chief Trupti Desai on Thursday tried to enter the core area of Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai where women are not allowed.

  • On Wednesday, AIMIM leader Haji Rafat Hussain warns Trupti Desai against it

  • On Thursday morning, Trupti declares she'll reach Haji Ali Dargah at 4 pm

  • A crowd gathers outside the dargah in support, amid heavy police protection

  • Trupti reaches the dargah around 5 pm

  • An hour later, Trupti is still in her car as cops do not allow her to go any further

  • The struggle continues...


  • By 7:30 pm, the dargah was closed. Hence, police requested Trupti Desai to not enter. Cops warned her that the stretch to the dargah was very narrow and providing security would be difficult.
  • Eventually, she is denied entry.
  • Moments later, Desai makes an announcement that she will meet the CM.
