I am from India so I can't judge other countries but what I had seen in India in the lockdown period that I can describe to you.
In lockdown time many peoples of India became unemployed but this was not the government's fault, this is because of covid-19. In this painful time, many peoples of India helped the peoples who were fully unemployed by giving them food products, clothes, providing them water if they needed it, and much more. Not only Islamic peoples but also all the peoples of India take part in it. And this was a grateful moment for us. ‘We are proud to be an Indian’
PREAMBLE OF OUR INDIAN CONSTITUTION also says that -
We the people of India, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a [SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC] and to secure to all citizens:
JUSTICE, social, economic, and political;
LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith, and worship;
EQUALITY of status and of opportunity and to promote among them all;
FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the [unity and integrity of the Nation];
IN OUR CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY this twenty-sixth day of November 1949 does HEREBY ADOPT, ENACT AND GIVE TO OURSELVES THIS CONSTITUTION.
This is how our constitution of India gives equal rights to all religions and to all people. We are grateful to MR. PREM BEHARI NARAIN RAIZADA who was the original writer of our constitution.
This image shows that all religions are equal. we have to respect all religions.
The term “Secular” refers to being “separate” from religion or having no religious base. Secularism term means the separation of religion from political, economic, social, and cultural aspects of life. Thus religion is only a purely personal matter. It provides full freedom to all religions and tolerance of all religions. It also stances for equal opportunities for followers of all religions. So, no discrimination and partiality on grounds of religion.
Secularism in simple words refers to an ideology that provides people with the right to follow any religion or not follow any. It permits the state with the responsibility to maintain neutrality in matters of religion. In a secular country, no state can legally favor or hate a particular religion. However, individuals residing in a country are free to follow and practice the religion of their choice.
Importance of Secularism:
Secularism is one of the most important achievements of any democratic country. It facilitates us with some benefits such as:
Living in a secular state has several benefits. Religious freedom is one of them. People are unrestricted to follow the religion of their choice or not follow any.
Fair Decision Making
The independence of the state from religious groups makes sure fair decision making. That provides equal treatment to all the religious and non-religious groups. No religious community can put on pressure on the state to make decisions in its favor.
Freedom of Speech
The ideology of secularism also allows people to express their opinions and beliefs freely. As in a secular state, no religious group can apply pressure of dominance. This has an increasing effect on the right to speech.
History of Secularism in India
The history of secularism in India times back to 1976. While it declared that a secular state during the 42nd amendment of the Indian Constitution. The leaders of Independent India had visualized a country where religion is no bar for people.
The state cannot favor or accept any religion as the state religion. The presence of the ideology of secularism in India indorses the co-existence of all religious groups. The execution of the ideology of secularism in a diverse country like India which embraces a dozen religions was a difficult task. Hence there are certain drawbacks that are yet to be addressed.
Western and Indian Secularism
The philosophy of secularism in the west based on the principle of separation of state and religion. It merely focuses on the rights of a citizen to follow the religion of their choice. India secularism supports the fair and equal treatment of all religions and treats them all as one under the law.
But the Indian government has not correctly been separated from religions. While making sure also that no religion has a special favor in a way unfair to the other groups. Secularism in the west has faith that every citizen has the right to follow any religion of their choice.
Problems with Secularism
Though the leaders of the independent state have struggled hard to make sure the fair execution of the ideology of secularism. But certain problems still need to be addressed to make certain proper, peaceful, and fair functioning.
State and religious groups, both should work self-sufficiently and abide by the law at the same time. After some decades of independence still, political parties remain to use the agenda of religious diversity and caste. Sometimes because of personal benefits, some politicians are refusing the motive of creating a secular state.
