Indians are getting vexed by Secularism! They see it as an encumbrance; something they know is guaranteed in the Indian constitution but which they do not like to follow if possible. It is more akin to traffic rules of India, which most Indians would rather not follow though they exist as laws.
Now, a HC court judge has said that Indians should ‘follow dharma propounded by Bhagvad Gita’. He opined that Gita is a ‘dharma shastra’ of India. The court added that as India recognized National Flag and National Anthem, it should consider Bhagvad Gita as rashtriya dharma shastra.
This ruling is not just a freak episode and should not be seen as one. There are millions of Hindu Indians who would like to see such trends paving the way for a ‘Hindu Rashtra’. One commenter at CNN-IBN said that at least someone is speaking for the majority of this nation while politicians and the government is appeasing the minorities of India.
Secularism is becoming an extremely repugnant element of Indian Constitution. Many Indians abhor it. Hindus would like to completely abandon this charade of pretending to be secular which according to them is nothing more than ‘appeasement of minorities’ while ‘punishing the majority’. Muslims have never reconciled themselves to this. Always riding ‘special privileges’ where they continue to practice Islamic Law, depriving women of their rights, they would rather kick secularism out to just implement Shariat in its purest form.
