  3. We all know that secularism is related to religion So, before we go on to the details of secularism, we must know a little bit more about religion This is not about one religion, but any religion in general


  4. Religion- what is it? Dictionary defines religion as "the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods'" So, all religious people believe that there is some force over and above human beings, which has control over uS


  5. Good or bad? Branding religion as good or bad is the worst of all ideas There were very specific reasons why religion was created Religion has been created by human beings


  6. What was the need for religion? When we know that an all powerful being is watching Religion was created to Karl Marx said that "Religion is the opium of masses" create a sense ofA and takina care ofu, we taking care of us, we AND SECURITY for human beings tend to do our work and live happily


  7. Will religion survive? Some people and groups say that once all human beings will achieve what they want to, religion will automatically vanish Religion, they say, is created out of miseny and helplessness However, is it really possible that the entire humankind will be free of its sorrows one day? This is highly unlikely, and hence, religion is going to exist till the humankind exists


  8. This is the reason we have made peace with the existence of religion, instead of fighting it And this is why, we have created the concept of secularism Having a strong view against religion (i.e. being an atheist) is also classified as a religion


  9. The issues with religion Though religion does provide a sense of security to its believers, all its aspects are not appreciable One groups, invariably, tends to dominate over the other group in the name of religion There is a clear sense of DOMINATION when it comes to religion


  10. Dominance pertaining to religion Inter- religious Intra- religious dominance dominance


  11. For instance, Christianity allows you to wear shoes inside a church. However, if you wear shoes inside a temple, mosque or Gurudwara, it is considered disrespectful


  12. Gujarat riots toll to go up from 952 to 1,180 Godhra train burning case: HC commutes death sentence of 11 to life 1,611 Days After Muzaffarnagar Riots, Jats Say 'Allahu Akbar' and Muslims Chant 'Har Har Mahadev Sena backs Centre on NRC, seeks ghar wapsi' of Kashmiri pandits


  13. INTRA-RELIGIOUS DOMINANTION For instance, almost all Even within a religion, there are various groups One group would always try to dominate over the other religions SUPPRESS women in one way or the other


  14. Women are not allowed to enter certain temples. Eg. Sabarimala temple Dalits have always been discriminated against


  15. To deal with both inter-religious and intra-religious domination, the concept of a SECULAR STATE is essential
