Title: Query regarding the religious category "Others"
Post by: farooq2010 on December 19, 2017, 03:32:03 AM
I am 25 years old. While applying for several public sector jobs, I specified my religion as "Others" and specified it as "none" wherever asked as I am not religious. My parents are Muslim and they insist that since they are Muslims, I have to state my religion as Islam. My question is does a person by law inherit the religion of his parents? Do I have to do any legal paperwork if I want to remain as non-religious or in "others" category?
