Q. In the context of the “Right to Freedom of Religion”, which of the following statements is/are correct?
  1. The conversion of a person into another religion is not a Fundamental Right.
  2. The State can impose reasonable restrictions for protecting the sovereignty of India.
Select the correct answer using the code given below:

  1. 1 only

  2. 2 only

  3. Both 1 and 2

  4. Neither 1 nor 2


Solution

The correct option is A
1 only
Explanation:

Statement 1 is correct: Article 25
(Under Right to Freedom of Religion) provides for the transmission and dissemination of one’s religious beliefs to others or exposition of the tenets of one’s religion. But, it does not include a right to convert another person to one’s own religion. Forcible conversions impinge on the ‘freedom of conscience guaranteed to all persons alike.

Statement 2 is incorrect: Rights under Articles 25 and 26 (Right to Freedom of Religion) are subject to public order, morality and health but not subject to other provisions relating to the Fundamental Rights.
