Indian constitution provides fundamental right to freedom of religion (Article 25,26,27,28 among others).
India is country with secular constitution. However many personal laws regarding marriages, divorce, inheritance, adoption etc are religion specific (along with some non-religious versions of these acts like Special Marriage Act)
- Does the constitution of India allows starting a brand new religion?
- Will this new religion get similar freedoms? Especially if it promotes controversial practices (which are not uncommon in many religions like — circumcision, polygamy, subjugation of women, weird dress codes etc)
