(Problems with Articles) Article 25: Specifically biased against Hindus

Central Government Act
25. Freedom of conscience and free profession, practice and propagation of religion
(1) Subject to public order, morality and health and to the other provisions of this Part, all persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practise and propagate religion
(2) Nothing in this article shall affect the operation of any existing law or prevent the State from making any law
   (a) regulating or restricting any economic, financial, political or other secular activity which may be associated with religious practice;
  (b) providing for social welfare and reform or the "throwing open of Hindu religious institutions" of a public character to all classes and sections of Hindus 

Explanation I The wearing and carrying of kirpans shall be deemed to be included in the profession of the Sikh religion 
Explanation II  In sub clause (b) of clause reference to Hindus shall be construed as including a reference to persons professing the Sikh, Jaina or Buddhist religion, and the reference to Hindu religious institutions shall be construed accordingly.

My Proposition: Must include throwing open of all religious institutions recognized by the Govt. Which means the recognition of all religions separately, for revoking the sub-religion status
