Shouldn't Secularism justify the abandonment of minority quotas?

    India is a secular nation and its proven over a period of time but the minority quotas do point out a divide that must be bridged dont you think ?

    India is NOT a secular nation; it is a PSEUDO-SECULAR JOKE of a nation. A truly secular nation is Turkey, where Islam the local belief, is not mocked at and yet there is sanity and logic in politics. Here in India, it is just pure madness.

    Quotas - caste|gender|religion based - are an effective tool to thwart off oneness amongst diversity. It's a policy created for certain sections with the make believe intention that they need these quotas for betterment and that they cannot do things on their own. We might not be ruled by the Brits now, but many do have an appetite for divide and rule! It's surely working in favor of the political parties and we get played everytime during elections. Instead of voting for someone capable, we vote for someone from our caste. And the list is endless!

    Yes. But that is a long call.

    I don't understand. If India is not truly secular, why hasn't anything been done about it? Wouldn't this anger people enough in India to demand reform, or am I assuming too much that people care about that kind of stuff in India?

    India is a Secular Country according to our constitution. Yeah! there are some laws that favor a certain section of the people, and in turn politicians. This is a sensitive topic to be discussed in detail. Politicians have the authority to bring about reforms, but when politicians themselves are gaining from it - why wash hands off em'?

    If liberty and equality, as is thought by some, are chiefly to be found in democracy, they will be best attained when all persons alike share in government to the utmost - Aristotle

    Eventually you'll get a politician or group in society that will force that change, it's just a matter of time.

    There are a lot of things that are written on the paper and kept. If someone from outside reads that, they would think India is the true Heaven on earth. But does that show the reality? NO. It doesn't. India is not a secular country its a pseudo-secular fascist mob rule. A truly secular model is that of Turkey and Israel.
