Weak Laws: How much amount Government can spend to sponsor Religious Activities?

Art.27 of the Constitution of India, prohibits governments to spend money to sponsor one or other religious activities.

In case of Prafull Goradia Vs U.O.I, 2011 (1) SCALE 761 on page 764 in para 9, Supreme Court observed that if substantial amount of tax collected by Government (i.e. 25% ) is spent on any particular religion, it will violate Art.27. But if small amount is spent, it will not  violate Art.27

In my personal view, above views is not based on sound legal reasoning.
