Every Citizen should be proud of their Religion: CJI Khehar


New Delhi. Chief justice of India JS Khehar said all citizens are equal; no one is inferior or superior from anyone.

On India’s 70th Independence Day Chief Justice of India JS Khehar said every citizen of the country should be proud of being an Indian irrespective of their religion. Khehar was addressing the Supreme Court Bar Association on the occasion of Independence Day.

He said “Whether it is Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Zoroastrians, Muslims or Jains, everybody should be proud of his own religion to be an Indian. “Every individual should be proud of his own ethnicity and culture and that is what the Constitution is all about.”

He said, no one is less or more than anyone else. “We have an agriculturalist as our vice president who started his political career by pasting party posters and a prime minister who used to be a tea vendor in his early age.”

Khehar informed the association that he was born in Kenya. He was not a citizen of this country but when he got the citizenship he had all the opportunity as anyone else would have.  Strengthening the power of independence he said, independence means freedom to all to achieve their hopes, ambitions, desires.
