Solution

The correct option is D 1, 2 and 3

Explanation:

Statement 1 is correct: The state shall not discriminate against any citizen based on religion. Articles 25–28 are fundamental rights that ensure the Right to freedom of religion for all citizens.

Statement 2 is correct: Article 14 says, the state shall not deny any person equality before the law and equal protection of the law. Under Article 15, the constitution prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth. Hence, by explicitly mentioning to prohibit discrimination based on religion, it depicts secular nature.

Statement 3 is correct: Article 15 says, “No citizen can be discriminated against or be ineligible for any employment or office under the State on grounds of only religion, race, caste, sex, descent, place of birth or residence”. Thus, it depicts the secular nature of the Indian constitution.
