Perceptions of Secularism in India

Avishi Gupta [3]


Abstract: The aim of the present study was to conduct a survey on the perceptions of the people about the practice of secularism in India. The Government of India passed the Citizenship Amendment Act in December 2019. The amendment is viewed with doubt by certain sections of the society for its discriminatory approach towards citizenship on the basis of religion. The researcher used a self-prepared questionnaire to conduct a survey among the adult population of the Delhi NCR through random sampling. The data collected was analyzed using both qualitative and quantitative analysis. The findings of the study revealed that the respondents believe that India is a secular country in practice and the government is committed to protecting religious minorities but the government's interference in religious matters is perceived as an agenda for short-term political gains.
