Was glad to read,
A minor girl’s father (behind bars for fatally stabbing her mother) and aunt were not granted the child’s custody.
They wanted the three year old to be raised as per their religion, with rituals performed and ideals of their religion taught to the child.
The court rejected the argument that a man’s religion must prevail upon his child, saying it was directly contrary to the freedom of religion under the Constitution and it would also be gender discriminatory.
And now glad to read that religion is not being thrust upon a spouse either.
Has Kareena converted to Islam?
She hasn’t converted, but she is now the Begum of Pataudi. He is the Nawab, so Kareena is the Begum.
Wouldn’t it be good if religion became more a matter of choice and beliefs than birth and marriage?
Also, do you think the sentiments of atheists, rationalists, skeptics and agnostics deserve respect? Is ‘not being Religious’ a Right?
