India is a secular country. She has no state religion. All religions and their followers are equal in the eyes of law. The Constitution allows freedom of faith, worship and religion. It also allows so practice and propagates the same. India is the second most populated country in the world. She is the melting-pot of various races and religions. Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhism, Jainism and Zoroastrianism are the major religions found in India. In spite of the diversity, there is unity. But repeated communal riots like the demolition of Babri Masjid, Sikh riots, Bombay blasts, Godhra carnage, and blood bath in Gujarat etc. have posed a threat to secularism. Dirty politics, poverty, illiteracy, economic backwardness, orthodox beliefs, etc. are the main causes of communal disharmony in India. These should be checked. The State should promote tolerance, social justice, economic welfare and equality among all the citizens. This would help us to create a harmonious nation.
