Supreme Court Judgement on Article 25

The Supreme Court: People Are Free To Choose Their Religion:

The Supreme Court said that people are free to choose their religion, even as it lashed out at a petition claiming there is mass religious conversion happening “by hook or by crook” across the country.

  • The supreme court said that people have a right under the Constitution to profess, practise and propagate religion.
  • Article 25 of the Constitution grants the Fundamental right to freely profess, practice, and propagate religion, subject to public order, morality, and health.
  • Every person is the final judge of his/her choice of religion or who their life partner should be. Courts cannot sit in judgment of a person’s choice of religion or a life partner.
  • Religious faith is a part of the fundamental right to privacy. The Constitution Bench judgment had earlier upheld inviolability of the right to privacy, equating it with the rights to life, dignity, and liberty.
