Rama Setu: don’t injure religious sentiments for ship passage — KT Thomas

Rama Setu: don’t injure religious sentiments for ship passage — Former SC Justice KT Thomas 

On religion and law

Nina C George (Deccan Herald, Oct. 19, 2007)

Justice K T Thomas spent some time with Metrolife to share his perspectives on religion, religious conversion and the law.

Your stance on the Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project?
Decisions on the project must not be taken in a haste. When the tsunami took place, the least affected was India and it was because of natural barriers like Sethusamudram. Secondly, there is a great religious sentiment attached to it and it belongs to a religion followed by the vast majority of the Indian people. You cannot injure the religious sentiments of a great majority of the people just to provide passage for the ships.
