Give a contrasting description of communalism and secularism.

Answer :

In Communalism, people who belong to different religions do not treat people belonging to other religions as equal citizens within one nation. The main idea is that either there is the dominance of the group of the majority of people or the desire of minority people to make a separate political unit.


In secularism, all the religions and communities get equal status in society. All the citizens have the right to practice any religion of their choice. It totally opposes the discrimination on the basis of caste and religion. The state has a right to intervene in the matters of religion in order to maintain equality with all communities.
