The Challenges of Cultural Diversity

Question

What is the government of India's dual policy with regard secularism?

Answer

As per secularism, the government should keep herself aloof from religious groups but she provides protection to them. They are placed under a simple political survey as disadvantaged vis-a-vis the majority community and a number of reliefs, reservations are given to them. As per some opponents of this dual policy, it is only an excuse to favour the minorities in return for their votes or other kind of support. There are also supporters to this policy who say without such special protection, secularism would loss its meaning as majority community would impose its values and norms on the minorities.
