Criminal Laws: Dara Singh Case: No justification for interfering insomeone’s religious belief

This is a case were conviction for life imprisonment of one Dara Singh, who set some missionaries on fire, was confirmed by Supreme Court on 21.1.2011

A clarification was made in para 75 of judgement by Supreme Court on 25.1.2011, and earlier lines were replaced with following lines as under:

There is no justification for interfering in someone’s religious belief by any means.”

Though this is one line clarification, it is warning to all people who engage in ‘Religion Conversion Methods Applied on Poor”
