In India, practicing social secularism gets u branded as an outcast in most parts of the country. If u marry into a different religion, many times u are not only outcasted by the respective religious communities but you also face problems like finding rental real estate.
SO in this secular republic, it is easier being a religious fanatic than it is a social secularist?
In real terms such thinking will take time to fade out. It entirely depends upon the politicians who thrive upon politics of communalism in garb of secularism
