The Constitution declares India to be a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic. Hence secularism is an essential part of our “official Ideology”.
The secular or communal political parties, whoever is in power, are constitutionally bound to follow this dictum. But for the past six months, it has been noticed that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the parent organization of ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) dictates its own agenda to diminish our ‘Official Ideology’ that relies on participative democracy and religious neutrality.
