Not at all. Although our country is secular, some of our people are very communal.

Lets start off with our politicians and their definition of secularism whih is tommy rot...
secularism means the license to practice ones own belief without fear or prejudice...
is it relevant today ? Naah.....these scoundrels have changed the definition to appeasement
and cower before a particular minorities section and vote banks who arm twist and threaten them...
leaving the other minorities...truly secular and with nationalistic fervour... out in the cold.
The majority of us are still floundering in the dark about what our constituion had promised...
and follow the dictats of the unscrupulous blindly. So why talk of secularism at all !

No. All our countrymen are not secular.
In fact, many take out different meanings of the word 'secular''.
