Hello Ma'am, with reference to Article 27, you've mentioned the govt. can use taxes to propagate the welfare of all the religions. Is it mentioned anywhere in the constitution about adequate representation of any religion in the country? Does the govt take any measure to propagate any religion in that case like Zoroastrian? If yes then why? If no then why? Does any cultural importance play some role in including govt for propagating any religion by using collected taxes?
no mention of adequate representation of any religion is made in the Constitution. Zoroastrianism is recognised as a minority religion in India under the Minorities Act and enjoys all the protections and safeguards given to other minority religions in India
hello ma'am. can govt under article 23 order citizens for conscription?
no conscription is not dealt with by the Constitution.
