the new law does not limit religious freedom. it only prevents minority religious group from forming open institution or association by increasing the number of member. but religion is in mind. it is not in some kind of association or institution. one can practice one"s religion at home. this law will not prevent him. one can hold religious meeting at one"s home. this law will not prevent that too. so i don"t think that this new law will limit religious freedom of anybody.
if paranjas are special religious clothing of women, then those clothing should be worn only at special occasion and not on general occasion. like women don"t wear bridal dress in office or university but only at marriage (special occasion).
so far as beard concerned, it has nothing to do with religion or spirituality
