India is as
secular as it is democratic. Secularism in India is considered as a
foreign copied idea which has been imposed on its people since
secularism is a word which has its origin in western countries and
relates to the separation of the church from the state. .The validity
for such provision was made by an amendment in the written constitution
of India. The current article is an effort to describe secularism in
Indian context. The article also highlights various understandings about
secularism popular in west and among left liberal thinkers. The
methodology is descriptive analytical.
