Articles of Faith: Religion, Secularism, and The Indian Supreme Court

 
Ronojoy Sen (Author) Law in India Series
Synopsis

The book studies the Supreme Court of India's interpretation of the constitutional right to freedom of religion and the influence of its perception on minorities and on the discourse of secularism and nationalism in the country. It examines the Court's decisions on Articles 25 to 30 of the Indian Constitution. It deals with SC interventions in the sphere of election campaigns, rights of minority educational institutions and religious conversions. It focuses on tensions that have arisen due to the state's need to be even-handed while carrying out religious reform. It examines the role of a former chief justice of India, P. B. Gajendragadkar, in rationalising and homogenising Hinduism.
