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.

Keywords: Secularism, Anti-Secularist Critique, Left-Liberal view, Western Ideology, Nation State, Democratic.
