Army Tribunal upholds the removal of a Muslim Sepoy from Military Service for growing beard

Brushing aside the challenge, made on the ground of protection of religious freedom, in growing a beard, as forming part of one’s religious practices,relying on Art.25 of the Constitution of India the tribunal held:-“Other than pointing out that there is a Sunnah for wearing beard by a Muslim it is not shown or established that wearing of beard for a Muslim is mandatory nor that it is a fundamental tenet of that religion. We also notice that in the enquiry proceeded against the applicant on his declining to obey orders for removal of his beard the applicant when questioned why he was growing beard had answered thus: “It is “Sunnah” of Prophet and highly desirable to sport a beard as per my religion”. He has not placed any Sunnah of Prophet before us commanding a Muslim to wear beard.
