The Matter of Secular Polity
Gandhi ji had envisioned an India built on the foundation of Hindu-Muslim unity! That has remained an illusion to a large extent, thanks to the pseudo-secular polity practiced by successive governments after 1947. The time has come that we rectify our approach! It has become abundantly clear that secular policies be implemented in a true way. India needs its citizens- irrespective of their faith- to be treated in an equal manner and not as ‘Majority’ and “Minority’! Thus uniform civil code should have come into force long ago, and on the same note, personal laws should have been shunned long ago. Faith is a personal matter, let people worship what they want! But law of the land can not be governed based upon the religious conveniences and compulsions!
