Pradhan said, “Sensitive issues connected to sentiments of a large section of society shouldn’t be dealt with hurriedly. This should be left to Shankaracharya and Gajapati Maharaja.” A division bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel and also comprising Justice Abdul Nazeer, stated in its interim order that the temple’s management committee will consider whether members of other religions will be allowed to visit the temple subject to regulations.
