Secularism has a new definition in India

Misleading people in the name of secularism.

Secularism continues to be defined in a perverted manner in India.

Chandrababu Naidu promises to pay for pastors' homes, fund building of churches, give SC status to Christians. He also claims that AP has no money!

My take:


Secularism as understood by most opposition political parties is no more about 'equal citizenship' and 'uniform application of rule of law', but more about 'vote bank' politics to retain/ come to power. This is highly amenable with 'enbloc' voters of minority communities, where the clergy holds tremendous advisory power/ role.

10 years ago, I wrote this in a fit of disgust at what Secularism means in India: https://kislaychandra.blogspot.com/2009/06/black-box-of-secularism_12.html?m=0

Nothing has changed.
