religious freedom is one of the basic freedoms and an early step in the many reforms that were enacted to create the modern state. Also known as freedom of religion, it is the guarantee by a government for freedom to practice any belief, form congregations and worship in any way which is not inconsistent with other basic human rights, (e.g. practicing hate speech or human sacrifice).
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights defines freedom of religion as follows:
separation of church and state, religious education, fundamentalism, evangelicalism, faith.
