OUP, ).

In an effort to ensure that it retained provinces governed by dynasties or by Muslims, the Republic introduced a secular government and instating an electoral regime.

Officially, secularism has always inspired modern India. The Supreme Court of India stated that India was secular since the Republic was founded through Part III of the constitution that deals with fundamental rights.

They defend a secular democracy in the US but bat for a Hindu Rashtra in India. This kind of perspective, and its acute lack of self-awareness, is the product of an amalgamation of factors, some with deep historical roots.   "By undermining the secular principles of the constitution, Mr Modi's latest initiatives threaten to do damage to India's democracy that could last for decades," it said.
