In order to accommodate diverse religious groups in a happy national life secularism was propounded. It suited the Indian temperament as well. It was a misfortune that the concept of secularism which is enshrined in the Constitution of India and which has become the most sacred slogan for all our political parties should be distorted, misinterpreted, and misused to the maximum to block out the least little expression of Hindu ethos and of Hindu Culture in the State apparatus and the public life of India. Secularism became an umbrella under which many politicians patronised religious minorities so that they could reach the citadels of Power. Religious minorities became Vote-banks.

Thus, certain political parties have come to develop a vested interest in according a special treatment nay, a preferential treatment to the religious minorities and have formed their -minority cells for the purpose. The Government has its Minority Commission. Since they are familiar with the political behaviour of the religious groups each wants to have a slice in the Christian cake.

The Christians are exploiting this terrible weakness of the parties and politicians. The way they conducted their agitation against the Freedom of Religion Bill, the recent agitation against certain Text Books versions in Maharashtra, the incidents in the Kanyakumari district and the Nilakkal troubles in Kerala that are now going on are all examples of the political pressure which Christians can build up on the basis of their voting strength. The above incidents are convincing proof of the militant communal role which the Indian Christianity has, of late, opted for.
