India Remains No More A Secular State!In the recent updates, The Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Delhi, Anil Couto, has issued a letter to the Catholics in India, stating calls for the Catholics of India to start a campaign of fasting and prayers for the upcoming general elections in 2019. There are few highlighted points as, "'turbulent political atmosphere' in the country that is threatening the democratic values and secularism". While this is not the first time that such a letter has been issued by a priest but during the assembly polls in Gujarat and NE states, a similar directive was issued asking people to vote against the BJP.
This is not an end here but this basis the concern has also been issued by the state of Italy too.
I don't understand the word "Secularism", wherein this only propagates the growth & fulfilment of the so-called the minority sections or the institutions or related to a certain belief. If there are expectations from the majority section then this can't also be the duty of the minority or of the certain sections or belief to take care of the others. But this is not happening & this is shameful too.
How long we will keep on making fool of ourselves in the name of secularism? There has to be a limit & we need to understand this.
