Pseudo-Secularism v/s Nationalism

The Preamble of Indian constitution states that 'India is a Secular country'.But today, after seeing the activities of so called Secularists of India, the question arises about what secularism represents in context to India?
whenever communal violence takes place,it may be Vododara or Post-Godra, so called protectors of democracy,the Secularists of congress party ,the slaves of Sonia Gandhi , screams that-"the HIndu Fundamentalists attacked Muslim Innocents,they raped and killed muslim women and children.....".But, where were these Medha Patkars or Arundathy Roys when Millions of Kashmiri Pandits were thrown out of their homeland Kashmir?when Hindus were killed in recent Doda Killings?
the secularists even deny that, "Godra attack" was done deliberatly by Muslims.For these Pseudo-secularists, the women and children burnt in Godra Train were Hindu activists!!!!
The media, which is as usual the propagator of Nehruvinist Pseudo secularism claims that Muslims were killed in Gujarat riots, but, do not add that 1/3 killed were Hindus.The NDTV's and CNN-IBN's show the burning of A Muslim in the car during recent Vododara violence, but deliberatly ignores the stabbing of 2 Hindus by the Muslims, the previous day.
IS this secularism?Is secularism means "Minority Appeasement"?
These Secular goons accuse BJP/RSS of being a communal party.But, in truth these pseudo secularists are the one who are trying to divide the country on communal lines by appeasing the Minorities.The congress party claims that it is uniting Indians and has worked to remove caste differences, but the fact remains that, they do caste politics to remain in power.
Left and the congress had often accused RSS of being communal, but the fact remains that, it was RSS, that was first to come forward to rescue People during Tsunami.It was RSS that impartes education to slum children and tribal people.SEcularist claim themselves to be the embodiement of nationalism in India, where as the nationalism in its pure form is represented by RSS, whose cadres, work for the nation,people and society without any gains except the satisfaction of serving "Bharath Mata".

Is Religion An Opium of Masses

Karl Marx once said-"Religion an opium of masses". But is it true?Religion is basically to establish Unity.[Relegare-that which keeps people together].the problem arises in the interpretation of this 'UNITY'.Semetic religions propagate the idea of "Unity lies in being Identical".so, these religion follow, 'one book,one prophet,one culture,one law,one faith'.They divide the world into believers and non believers.further, they work to create unity in world, by making the whole human population to follow their one God policy, by converting and destroying the non-belivers, whome Muslims call Khafirs and christians as Heretics.this, narownesss, leads to conflicts and confusion.this Religious intolerance is what callled by Marx as opium.but, this does not applicable to Eastren religions like Hinduism, which propagates "Unity In Diversity".India is the typical, every region, has its distinct, History,culture,belief,practise,language,dresscode.....
Hindu religion do not have founders, not a single book.It has a 100's of books, which can be termed as "Vedic Scriptures".It can be broadly diveded into "Shruthi" and "Smrithi".these contains many literatures like- 4 Vedas,Upanishads,Brahmanas,Aranyakas....
This "unity in diversity" has resulted in peace and prosperity for more than 7000 years, until Islam came in 1000AC.
Hence, Karl Marx was right, in refering to european religions, but is not applicable to India, where religion is not a Faith, but a 'a way of life'.
