- Justice Kurien Joseph wrote a letter to Kejriwal to start worship at religious places in Delhi
- Justice Joseph said it would be unconstitutional to continue the ban on religious rights
- Justice Joseph has once written a letter to Prime Minister Modi regarding religious beliefs
Former Supreme Court Justice Kurien Joseph has written a letter to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal seeking permission to resume services and worship at religious places. Justice Kurien Joseph said in his letter that it would be unconstitutional to impose restrictions on religious rights once the government allows the reopening of restaurants, bars and theaters.
Activities like bars, restaurants, theaters are allowed
Praising the Delhi government for overcoming the epidemic, Justice Joseph said that the Delhi Disaster Management Authority has allowed the resumption of activities such as restaurants, bars, theaters and auditoriums with 50% seating capacity from August 31, 2021. Weekly markets and spas are also allowed. The number of people attending events such as funerals and weddings has been increased to 100.
… but restrictions on religious sites continue
“These are positive signs that indicate a return to normalcy in society,” Justice Joseph said in his letter. However, restrictions remain in place in the order that religious sites will be allowed to open, but no visitors will be allowed. If you recall, the restrictions were eased before the second wave and the resumption of service in public places of worship, respecting the restricted numbers and other Covid-1 prot protocols. The second wave of epidemics only re-imposed restrictions, which have now been significantly reduced.
Once a letter has been written to Prime Minister Modi regarding religious beliefs
Earlier, Justice Kurien Joseph was caught up in the controversy in 2015 when he wrote a letter to Prime Minister Modi expressing his inability to attend his dinner and judges’ conference. In a letter to the Prime Minister, Justice Joseph said: “His faith does not allow him to do so (attend the conference). In a letter to the Prime Minister, he said that no important event should be held on any festival day.
