Digvijaya: Haji Ali Dargah ban on women a Taliban-like step

Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh Wednesday termed the ban on entry of women into Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai as a "regressive step", adding that "Talibani thought" cannot be allowed in India.

"Not allowing women to visit Haji Ali is a regressive step. Liberal Muslims must rise to oppose it. Can't allow Talibani thought in India," Singh wrote on micro-blogging site Twitter.
