Read the paragraph under the heading ‘What is Secularism?’ and comment on it.

Answer :

Secularism means separation of the state from religion. This is an important part of the Fundamental Rights as mentioned in the Constitution of India. This feature was very important to be included in our constitution because it would help to prevent the domination of one religion over another. Every country has different religions but one of them has a majority over others. If this majority religious group has the access to State Power, it can use this for personal gains. It may also use the financial resources to discriminate against the other religions. The state also does not enforce any particular religion nor does it take away the religious freedom of the people. However, it may intervene if it is any domination by one religion on the others. This interference is only done to ensure equal treatment.
