Both sides of the argument are flawed: Why the great secularism debate is a waste of time

There will be plenty of theoretical drivel from both sides of the secular divide justifying respective positions. And as usual there won’t be a point of convergence. Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Congress president set the ball rolling on day one of the winter session; Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take it forward on Friday. The end result is not expected to be dramatic. #India #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #parliament #RSS #Debate #secularism debate #Nehuruvian #Nehuruvian secularism #and the other is that of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh
