Prayagraj, 31st July: The Allahabad High Court has stated that the Constitution gives freedom to every adult citizen to adopt the religion of his choice and marry of his choice. There is no scientific restriction on this. The constitution also gives everyone the right to live with dignity. People leave home, change religion for the sake of respect.
However, The Allahabad High Court expressed concern and said that the contractors of religion should reform themselves, because the country is weakened by the conversion of the majority of the citizens. Disruptive forces get the benefit of it.
The court said that history is witness that if we were divided, the country was attacked and we became slaves. The Supreme Court has also considered religion as a way of life and said that faith and belief cannot be bound. Bigotry, fear and greed have no place in this.
