Exercise of Religious Freedom Subject To State Restriction under the Indian Constitution
Dr. Amit kumar Ishwarhai Parmar
Freedom of religion' does not mean that every person can do what he feels under the veil of the religion. It does not mean that the religion is uncontrollable, unfettered. The framer of the Constitution provided some restriction on the freedom of religion, so that the valuable right of freedom of religion may not be misappropriated. The Constitutions of the democratic States guarantee freedom of conscience and the right to manifest one’s religious beliefs in overt ways. But this freedom is to be ensured in a balanced manner so as not to endanger the security and wellbeing of the society, the maintenance of which is the prerogative of the State for the proper growth and progress of the people. Hence, Constitutions provide also the power to regulate and even to restrict this freedom. The manner and various reasons under which religious freedom comes under State restriction in India will be discussed in research paper.
