Nature of fundamental rights
The very conception of a fundamental rights is that it being a rights guaranteed by the constitution cannot be taken away by the law and it is not only technically inartistic but a fraud on the citizens for the makers of a constitution to say that a rights is fundamental but that it may be taken away by the law. If this argument is sound, it would follow that the legislature may today indirect the profession of Islam by the citizen because the rights to profess, practice and propagate religion is under the Article as much subject to law as the rights to establish, maintain and manage religious intuition.
