♦ Article 25: It gives the basic right to freely believe, practice and spread religion under the premise of public order, morality and health.
♦ Everyone is the ultimate judge of his/her chosen religion or life partner. The court cannot rule on a person’s religious beliefs or life partner’s choice. Religious beliefs are part of the basic right to privacy.
