About the Webinar:
“Religious freedom: A Legal and Administrative Issue” is a topic of debate in the present times. The concept of religious freedom in India comes from Article 25-28 of the Indian Constitution which says that Indians are free to practice any religion of their choice. This was further strengthened when the word ‘secular’ was incorporated in the Constitution after the 42nd Amendment Act,1976. On the other hand, the Brazilian Constitution officially respects all religions stating that freedom of conscience and belief is inviolable and it provides for the free exercise of religious beliefs.
