Abstract

This paper discusses the issue of noise pollution with regard to the current Kaduna State Bill called a Bill for a Law to Substitute the Kaduna State Religious Preaching Law 1984 which has become very controversial. Because many believe that the contents of this Bill constitute an affront to religious freedom as guaranteed in the Nigerian Constitution, this paper also analyses the contents of the Bill in relation to the right to freedom of religion, thought and conscience.
