Show equal importance, respect to sacred days of all religions: SC judge to PM Moditext_fields
New Delhi: Taking strong exception to the two-day Chief Justices conference being held on Good Friday, Supreme Court judge Justice Kurien Joseph has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to show equal importance and respect to the sacred days of all religions.
"Your goodself would appreciate that no important programmes are held during sacred days of Diwali, Eid, Xmas etc, though we have holidays during that period as well," Justice Kurien wrote to Prime Minister Modi on April 1.
"Request you to have in mind these concerns while scheduling events and show equal importance and respect to sacred days of all religions," he added.
Justice Kurian had earlier last month written a letter to Chief Justice of India H.L. Dattu over the conference of Chief Justices of the High Courts being held on Good Friday.
