Dorsey 0 Comments By James M. Dorsey.

      Secular Sectarianism: Limits of Subaltern Politics includes several accounts of such conflicts, opening up a new area of study for further conceptualization. This book emphasizes that citizenship in practice is expressed through the right to speak for others and not just for oneself.   One of the major connecting links between these two epoch-making thought currents is the idea of social equality. Indeed, Indian secularism acts as a bridge between religions in a multi-religious country via the secular concept of equality. NEHRU’S exposition of secularism is rooted in affirmation of social and political equality.

      Post-Independence, Nehru continued with the same colonial framework of secularism where scientific progress and temper would be an answer to the superstition ridden society. The answer to deal with a variety of religious superstitions and prejudices is development of a ‘scientific temper.’.   Nehru’s economic strategy rested on strong State control, a model not yet completely disowned. Rai of the IGNCA says Nehru “viewed India from the perspective of Marxism and implemented the Soviet model of development”. On his secularism, Dasgupta questions Nehru’s “idea of cosmopolitanism with specific guarantees for minorities”.

Get this from a library. Nehru, a study in secularism. [M Balasubramanian] -- On the political philosophy, chiefly secularism, of the late prime minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru, 'Nehru didn't impose secularism'.

'His secularism merely declared the equality of all religions in India under fundamental rights.'. SECULARISM ­REMOVED BY NEHRU, PUT BACK BY INDIRA The word “secularism” was first proposed to be included in the Preamble of the Constitution of India, during a debate on 15 November by Prof K.T.

Shah. Nehru, along with Dr B.R. Ambedkar, the chairman of the drafting committee, were the ones who were most opposed to the addition of this. Jawaharlal Nehru, first prime minister of independent India (–64), who established parliamentary government and became noted for his neutralist (nonaligned) policies in foreign affairs.

He was also one of the principal leaders of India’s independence movement of the s and ’40s. Balasubramanian, M.Nehru, a study in secularism / M.

When the country celebrates the th birth anniversary of Pandit Nehru, an occasion arrives to explore his most important contribution to all of us.

That is to be found in his unflinching efforts to establish and practice secularism within the country’s.

Nehru Secularism: Why Nehru dropped and Indira inserted the S-word in the Constitution Ironically though, it was Nehru along with the chairman of the drafting committee of the constitution, B R Ambedkar, who were also most opposed to the idea of including.

Tharoor, like me, is an admirer of Nehru and believes that his contribution to India is immense. This naturally, has its effect on his portrayal of Nehru and so this book should not be viewed as a comprehensive study of the man or of all his achievements and failures. I see this book as another perspective on Nehru and a well-written by:   Jawaharlal Nehru was born into an affluent Kashmiri Brahman family in Allahabad on Novem Tutored at home until the age of 15, Nehru subsequently attended Harrow in England and, later.

The beginnings of some answers to larger questions of whether Nehruvian ideas, of ‘socialism’, of planned economic development, or of secularism were properly implemented or not should certainly be accessible to readers of my book.

Allegedly, Nehru still awaits a ‘definitive assessment’: this, I hope, is neither possible nor desirable. CHAPTER - VI NEHRU ON SECULARISM - AN EVALUATION Evaluating any aspect of Nehru's ideas is a daunting task. This is especially so when it is on a controversial topic like secularism.

Nehru himself was an enigmatic personality embodying in himself past traditions, present compulsions and future aspirations of the people and the country.

His writingsFile Size: KB. “I believe that secularism is not the enemy of spirituality. Our spirits are in fact secular and free. But the enemy of your spirit is materialism which produces legalism. People scramble for the "perfect law" in order fix everything, while failing to see that law only points towards what is material.

Tharoor challenges this well in his book and shows the legacy of Nehru and the India that he tried to build on the pillars of democratic institution-building, staunch pan-Indian secularism, socialist economics at home and a foreign policy of non-alignment/5(80).

Nehru regarded secularism as the basic law of Indian nationhood. It grew as an integrative process. He believed that the territorial integrity, political stability and national identity in a country with multi-faceted diversity can be achieved only through secularism.

According to Nehru, secularism does not mean indifference to religion. The B.J.P.’s Tarun Vijay, expressing a more stringent interpretation of secularism on the opinion website Daily 0, sees “beef eating as a challenge to India, its public display as an act of.

Secularism is first and foremost a doctrine that opposes all such for ms of inter -religious domination. This is however only one crucial aspect of the concept of secularism.

So he gives a somewhat unbiased description putting forward the pros and cons of the nehruvian thoughts. This one is a good study on Nehru and his legacies/5. Nehru’s view was – “Equal protection by the state to all religion“.

He wanted a secular state to be one that “protects all religions but does not favour one at the expense of others and does not itself adopt any religion as the state religion.” Indian secularism is fundamentally different from. With the Forty-second Amendment of the Constitution of India enacted inthe Preamble to the Constitution asserted that India is a secular nation.
