INDIAN SECULARISM THREATENED!

A Christian Response Introduction

Keywords: SECULARISM

Abstract

On the occasion of the 33rd annual seminar of the Indian Theological
Association, during April 24-28, 2010, about 50 of its members gathered to
reflect on how Indian Secularism (as reflected in the Indian Constitution) is
threatened today, and to formulate an appropriate Christian response. The
threats come from various quarters: organizations espousing extreme right
ideologies, communal parties professing fundamentalist agendas, persons
and groups having recourse to violence rather than to judicial procedures,
and those wanting to impose a so-called cultural nationalism on the people
of India.
