This article discusses about struggle that women have to face in terms of Religious Liberty in spite of India being a member to CEDAW as well as having one of the fundamental Right to Freedom of Religion under Article 25 of Indian Constitution. The major reason behind such struggle is mindset of people over equality concept of men and woman as well as static faith in orthodox religious beliefs. Moreover, there are several efforts made by Indian Judiciary to eradicate such discrimination on the basis of sex under freedom of religion particularly, right to worship at temples as seen in landmark cases of Haji Ali dargah case as well as Sabarimala Temple case. Thus, at the end author suggests that people to change their mindset then only there would be end to struggle of women and they would freely practise their religious beliefs.
