New Delhi, April 24: The Delhi High Court, hearing a plea on the security of churches here, on Friday said there “should not be any attack on any kind of religious places” in the country. Justice Siddharth Mridul said India had survived for thousands of years in harmony and this should continue. After some attacks on churches, a public interest litigation (PIL) was filed in the court seeking protection of religious rights of Christians and a court–monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT) probe. At the hearing, the central government said the PIL was “commul” in ture. “Why should this (petition) be concerned with churches only? All places of worship should be protected irrespective of religion,” it said. (IANS)
