Can religious acts be allowed on govt land: SC refers plea to larger bench


The Supreme Court today referred to a larger bench the question whether religious activities can be allowed on government land or property in a secular State like India.

A bench of Justices R.F Nariman and Indu Malhotra referred the petition filed by an organisation to the Chief Justice of India for setting up of a larger bench. While hearing the petition, the bench said the issue was related to an important question whether such religious functions can be allowed on public properties in view of the fact that India is a secular nation.

The organisation has moved the top court after being denied permission by civic authorities to hold religious activities at a park in south-west Delhi.
