Law Minister condemns ‘uncalled for’ action of some legislators
SRINAGAR, OCTOBER 08: Minister for Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs, Syed Basharat Bukhari today said that nobody has a right to interfere in religious affairs of others which has been guaranteed and protected under the Constitution.
“I am a Muslim and do practice what is allowed under Sharia including having beef, and nobody can stop me from doing so”, the Minister said in the Legislative Council. He said same holds true for other religions as well as the followers of other religions can eat and practice whatever is enshrined in their respective religions.
The Minister stated this while responding to the issue raised by the BJP MLCs regarding an incident that had earlier happened in the Legislative Assembly in relation to independent MLA, Er Rashid.
Mr Bukhari said nobody has the right to hurt the religious sentiments of the people from any faith and in a secular country like India everybody has the constitutional right to practice and preach ones religion.
