India’s Model: Faith, Secularism, and Democracy

In India, the presence of religion in the public sphere is
tempered by the ideals of peace and the preservation of human
rights, allowing for a kind of balance seldom seen in the Western
‘secular’ world of extremes. The Indian constitution does not give
preference to any one religion, but it does allow for public
intervention in religious affairs, something taboo by the standards
of Western secularism.
