Dimapur, August 11 (EMN): All India Congress Committee (Minority Department) Observer for Meghalaya, Nagaland and Mizoram Rejaul Karim Laskar emphasised the need to protect secularism saying the Government of India is duty bound under the Constitution to treat every religion equally.
In a ‘courtesy call’ to the Nagaland Baptist Church Council (NBCC) office in Kohima today, Laskar met the former general secretary Rev. Dr. Zelhou Keyho had a very cordial discussion on important issues.
Referring to the Constitution of India, which described India as a secular country, Laskar emphasised that the right to freedom of religion-including the right to “freely profess, practice, and propagate religion”-granted by the Constitution of India must be protected from undue encroachment.
Rev. Keyho thanked Laskar for visiting the NBCC Office.
Earlier in the day, Laskar met Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) president K Therie at the NPCC office in Kohima. Both leaders discussed the ways to strengthen the Minority Department of the Congress party in Nagaland. They also discussed how the Minority Department of the Congress party can contribute to the election campaign of the party in Nagaland.
Latter in the evening, Laskar left Kohima for Guwahati.
