Understanding Secularism !!

  1. Brilliant post! As a Muslim, I feel that most Hindu Indians think like you do. Since most of my friends are Hindus, I can say that from personal experience as well. In the 21st century, no one wants to stay stuck in the evil side of religion. We have suffered their consequences too many times, with too much severity.
    Having said that, I believe the onus lies on the Hindu majority to distance itself from its right-wing fringe elements and even actively denounce them (somewhat like you did in this post). The protection of minorities lies in the hands of the majority.
    The Muslims, on the other hand, should stop demanding special treatment. They should stop forming closed groups (or ghettos, if you like) whenever and wherever possible, and assimilate with the pluralistic cultural fabric of our country. Of course, it is unnecessary to mention that distancing themselves from extremist elements, and raising their voices against them, is of utmost importance.
    No one cares for religion when in power. Power and profit are the only things that matter. Gullible people like us think it’s somehow connected to religion. And the so-called defenders of our respective religions exploit that weakness.

    1. I am a simple guy attended my eid functions during my stay in Lucknow, eat beefs also though I have changed to a vegetarian for some different reasons, I don’t want to see tag of majority and minority, we need to protect everyone who needs protection, we need to help everyone who is in need, we need to love and spread love and compassion where it is deficit, that’s my motto of life !!!

      We need to stand for every human being, enjoy the diversity, and love can bind all of us, because practically there is no difference,

      I have read Quran (English translation), bible, and gita also ( abridged versions)… And the above opinion is what I gained !!

      Always there for the cause of love and providing respect !!?

  2. That is not possible in a country like India. I’ve seen so many of communal people supporting incidents like dadri and kulkarni’s face blackening because for them, their religion is of utmost importance. I always thought that we the educated Indians will have much more sense of a secular India. But no. Educated people are more staunch believers in their religion. There are only a few secular Indians in this country. And I think we need to empower each other and encourage the nonseculars to follow the suit.
