§ 11. Sir J. D. REES
asked whether the British Government, in taking over the religious endowments made by its predecessors in title, made any distinction as to the claims of different religions, prescribed any conditions as to the use of temples and mosques, or required that temples should be open for the use of Mahomedans and mosques for the devotion of Hindus?
§ Mr. MONTAGU
The answer is in the negative. In maintaining religious endowments created by former rulers of India the British Government was concerned only with their application in accordance with predetermined conditions.
