Chinnappa Reddy's Dissenting note

[VAMANAN said... Dear Tusar... Much of religion in India has been spiritual while the western experience is of a dogmatic church and its unchangeable doctrines. Many westerners have a strong antipathy to religion because of this...Of course those who are rigid in their Semitic religion find it impossible to accept the infinite flexibility of religion in India and deride it in every way... As Sri Aurobindo said, and I am putting these lines only from memory, religion will reach its perfection when there is a religion for each of us... to enable out spiritual flowering... 8:24 AM, January 08, 2010 ]

Tusar N Mohapatra said...

The state of “religion in India” is perhaps much more complicated as Chinnappa Reddy, J. held in his Dissenting note in S.P. Mittal Etc. Etc. vs. Union Of India And Others on 8 November, 1982. [TNM] 3:24 PM, January 08, 2010

  1. To each his religion...and when one man's 'religion' steps on the toes of another man's, the courts are there to settle it...
    And of course there are those who would like to hijack others religion for selfish ends..that's their religion! One can fight or hope they will learn life's lessons and change depending on what one's wants to make of life.
