About the Book

This Book offers a comprehensive account of the laws of India relating to Religion and religious freedom in General and religious affairs of the country's various faith traditions and communities in particular.

The book deals not only with the laws directly governing religion and religious affairs but also with religion-related provisions scattered over numberous general laws of the country. A glance through the contents would reveal its extensive coverage of the entire gamut of laws relevant to or having a bearing on its theme.

The book highlights the peculiar concept of secularism which India has developed over the years and under which there is complete equality of and equal respect for all the religious traditions prevailing in the country. Spelling out the various world models of religion-State Relations and the international legal norms on religious rights and liberties, it demonstrates the unique nature of India's legal system in this regard and its complete adherence to the said international norms.

The first work of its kind, this book answers a pressing need of India's pluralist society and aims at promoting compliance with the citizen's Fundamental Duty under the Constitution 'to value and preserve the rich heritage of our composite culture.'
