Legal arguments, is certainly not sufficient to explore this issue. Various reasons to be employed in order to reach the conclusion; cultural practices are not incompatible with the principle of state sovereignty. Cultural practices cannot be limited in certain or fixed space. Culture always follows who advocates and practices it. Globalization makes culture no more bound to geographical area, race and religion.
