What is Secularism?

Secularism means separating the power of religion and the power at the state level. Indian Constitution contains fundamental rights that protect us against state power as well as against the autocracy of the majority. The Indian constitution allows individual the freedom to live by their religious confidence and practices as they understand these. Secularism refers to the separation of religion from the state.

Why is it important to separate religion from the state?

We come across many cases that majority group does not allow the minority group to practice their religion. The reason why it is important to separate state and religion in democratic societies is the dictatorship of the majority group and the violation of the fundamental rights.

Another important motive is because we need to guard freedom of persons to exit from their religion, hold another religion or have the freedom to interpret religious teachings differently.

What is Indian Secularism?

The Indian state is secular by the order of Indian constitution. According to the constitution, only a secular state can realize its objectives to ensure the following:-

  • That one religious community does not dominate another.
  • That some members do not dominate other members of same religious community.
  • That the state does not impose any specific religion nor take away the religious freedom of individual.

The Indian state works in various ways to prevent the above domination. It uses a strategy of distancing itself from religion. In India, government spaces are not supposed to display or promote any religion.

The state makes certain exclusions for certain religious communities so that the views of all religions do not interfere with religious practices of each other.

The third way in which Indian secularism works to prevent the domination listed is through a strategy of intervention. To safeguard that equal inheritance rights are respected, the state may have to intervene in the religion-based personal laws of communities.
