Protection of Secularism in India

Understanding Secularism of Class 8

Summary

The Indian State is secular and works in various ways to prevent religious domination. The Indian Constitution guarantees Fundamental Rights that are based on these secular principles. However, this is not to say that there is no violation of these rights in Indian society. Indeed it is precisely because such violations happen frequently that we need a constitutional mechanism to prevent them from happening. The knowledge that such rights exists makes us sensitive to their violations and enables us to take action when these violations take place.
