B. that state will have close relation with religion

C. that state can discriminate among religions

Answer :

The Principle of secularism are adopted in the Constitution of India:

D. that state will recognise rights of religious groups


E. that state will have limited powers to intervene in affairs of religions


The above principles are adopted because:


1. To safeguard the freedom of individuals.


2. To protect religious freedom of individuals, therefore, state must not help religious organisations.


3. This was because a person’s freedom and sense of self-respect was directly dependent upon the status of her community.


4. Religiously sanctioned customs such as untouchability deprived individuals of the most basic dignity and self-respect. Such customs were so deeply rooted and pervasive that without active state intervention, there was no hope of their dissolution. Thus, the state may help or hinder religious communities depending on which mode of action promotes values such as freedom and equality.
