Abstract

India is a secular country where all the major religions of the world exist in harmony. Indian brand of secularism is different from that in the west. With one of the youngest populations in the world, the present generation seems to be unaffected by the scourge of religious extremism and the violence caused by it. The case point being Ayodhya judgement which did not create any mayhem. India has reached a point where secularism is a way of life and not just another ideology, the assimilation of the idea being so deep that India can’t be imagined to be anything but secular.
