New Delhi: Respecting God cannot be controlled or regulated through any court order, Delhi High Court said on Wednesday.

The court was hearing a petition that alleged pictures of gods were being put up only with a view to prevent people from urinating or throwing waste.

"We as citizens should know where to put God's pictures. This should be our habit. A citizen's habit cannot be controlled by a court order," the bench of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C. Hari Shankar said.
