Jay Sekulow insist on Religious and Constitutional Freedom
Religion plays an important role in drafting history of a Country and about its people. Be it due to fear or respect, people tend to follow rules & guidelines set by a religion and in times of adversity, they offer prayers to set things right. Thus, right to speech and preach your religion is one of the important rights offered to the citizens of any country. Jay Sekulow, the defender and follower of such rights is a noble and humble person who has devoted his life in the service of humankind.
According to Mr. Sekulow and American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) – “Sept. 11, 2001 will be remembered in history not only as a horrible act of terrorism on the lands of United States, but also a time when Americans sacrificed their lives for others, a time when they stood together, unified and resilient.” To prove it true, every year thousands of people assemble at Ground zero to offer prayers in order to bring comfort and solace to humanity as a whole. It is natural that if something good or bad happens in any part of the world, it surely affects the rest of the world.
Mr. Sekulow has argued many cases in respect to religious liberty and constitutional freedom. The most significant case he handled in Supreme Court was that of few students who want to have a Bible club in high school. He defended their case successfully that resulted in winning the permission to form a club.
The growing phenomenon of critical issues involving life and religious freedom that was prevailing in Europe can have adverse effects on US constitution also. Thus to safeguard the interest of the people at both the locations, Mr. Sekulow and ACLJ set their office in France as European Court of Human Rights, so as to handle the cases related to people of Europe there and then without mixing them with the cases of US.
