CHIDAMBARAM SAYS SECULARISM CHALLENGED
NEW DELHI: Former finance minister P Chidambaram on Wednesday said democracy was built on some very fundamental and seminal ideas such as secularism, which is under challenge now. “One of the most fundamental ideas of a modern democracy is secularism and that secularism is under challenge to a point where citizenship has become an object of attack,” he said at the launch of Ashish
Nandy and Professor Aakash Singh Rathore’s book – “Vision For A Nation - Paths and Perspectives”. Former PM Manmohan Singh and former VP Hamid
Ansari were also present.
