Religion: rituals and core values
My take on the SGPC issue. "If I am not willing to abide by the generally accepted practices of a community, why should I be keen to have a say in the running of its religious affairs? I should be quite content to leave it those who respect the widely respected core practices of that religion. I see a contradiction in my not observing the external symbols of a religion and yet being so concerned about how its shrines are managed."
