I have no opinion one way or another about India in this regard. Don't judge me on it! The point is that I have been given this comment by a person doing a reputable survey for EK. IDK if it is correct or not, nor do I have any way to say more than what I did ("what I am told").
From my POV we have 2 opinions. One may involve an Islamic POV and the other may not. IDK.
