Maharashtra:�Trupti Desai on Thursday entered Mumbai�s Haji Ali Dargah to offer prayers amid tight security, saying her struggle was for gender equality.

�At the Dargah, I prayed that women be allowed to enter the inner sanctum, as was the case till 2011,� Bhumata Ranragini Brigade chief Desai said, after coming out of the Dargah.

"Police cooperated with us this time. This is a fight for gender equality. We will try to visit the inner sanctum next time," she said.

"We saw till where we are allowed and till where men go inside the dargah. In 15 days, trustees should allow women inside the inner sanctum, else we will protest," she said.

She was stopped short of going into the shrine on April 28 by protestors.
