    Why Indian Supreme Court decision, on 9th November 2019, awarding the site of 16th century Babri Mosque may prove to be the last nail in the putrefying coffin of Indian Secularism.

    The Hindutva mobs on Dec 6, 1992 that attacked and demolished the Babri mosque could still be explained as uncontrolled zealots but the well thought out decision of Indian Supreme Court almost 27 years later is surrender of the state at the highest level; an outright capitulation to right wing Hindutva lead by no else but by the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. But courts often can not rise much above the sentiments of the politics that surrounds them. Indian Courts in 1950's or even 1990 would not have delivered such a decision - but now politics has changed. Secularism has virtually collapsed in Indian politics; why this is happening? This discussion attempts to trace these developments..

    Still clutching at the false narrative of "secular" India???... Lol.

    India never was never will be secular. Hindus have just changed their mantra from "moo par ram ram baghaal may chooree" ... To ... "Moo par maar maar baghaal may mussalman ki Khoon ki chooree"

    India is still secular on paper. What we need is to push them towards passing NRC law which will make their constitution similar to Pakistan. Indo-Pak bhai bhai

    Its a tradition that Indians believe will bring their children good luck and protect them from disease. And scores of parents have been lining up in the tiny village of Betul in Madhya Pradesh to roll their youngsters in cow pat. People in the small village believe that smearing the dung on their young sons and daughters help to give them a healthy life free from ailments. They also say that the 'purity' of the cow dung will bring the children good luck. The practice is followed a day after Diwali - the biggest Indian celebration, also known as the festival of lights. In the weeks leading up to Diwali, people in the village collect cow dung and store it in huge piles. On the day after the celebration, a special prayer is offered to the Hindu Gods, before people start dipping their children, some still on babies, in the pool of dung. The cow is considered one of the most sacred animals in Hinduism and they are worshipped as revered creatures. Many Hindu preachers believe that cow urine and dung have medicinal properties. Meanwhile cow slaughter and the consumption of beef is banned in certain parts of India.

    Indian prime minister claims genetic science existed in ancient times
    Narendra Modi gives examples of Karna and Ganesha to support view that cosmetic surgery and reproductive genetics used thousands of years ago

    Among other things he also claimed among other things, that the Hindu God Rama flew the first aeroplane and that stem cell technology was known in ancient India.

    Planes discovered in Vedic age, it could fly between planets, says speaker at Indian Science Congress

    Certain Indians have already claimed to have discovered plastic surgery, IVF and motor cars. Now, adding to that, a prominent professor in Mumbai has said that Hindu epics are all we need to understand the ancient world. He says we shouldn't rely on modern evidence or research.

    Ever since PM Narendra Modi's accession there has been a surge in nationalist sentiments of a strange kind - as if a section of India has been on a trip to rewrite history.

    India was never secular in the first place.......it is just coming out with her true nature and purpose.

    exactly the same how Gandhi wants indian to be, a Hindu country and on the contrary Pakistan is becoming more and more tolerant how exactly Jinnah wanted Pakistan to be.

    both countries are reaching the purpose of their existence.

    There is nothing called being more tolerant. Pakistan is either tolerant or not. The qualifiers like "more" or "less" tolerant is absurd. As far as I see, Pakistan has not declared itself secular. Even DGISPR stated openly that Pakistan intends to be an Islamic state. So, I don't see any tolerance here
