The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: Delhi high court on Fri­day is­sued no­tice to the Cen­tre on a PIL against loud­speak­ers in re­li­gious places say­ing it vi­o­lates Ar­ti­cle 21of the Con­sti­tu­tion.

The plea, filed by an ac­tivist San­jjiiv Kku­maar, said ban­ning of loud­speak­ers will not vi­o­late Ar­ti­cle 25 or 26 (Ar­ti­cles on Free­dom of Re­li­gion) of the Con­sti- tu­tion. It said that loud­speak­ers were never part of any re­li­gion as the in­stru­ment came into ex­is­tence only in 1924.

There­fore, it stressed that since loud­speak­ers are not part of/in­trin­sic to any of the re­li­gions, ban­ning loud­speak­ers will not vi­o­late Ar­ti­cle 25 or 26 of the Con­sti­tu­tion. “Loud­speak­ers were never part of any re­li­gion…,” the PIL states.
