Nation must pre­cede re­li­gion

Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - - Ht Think! -

This refers to ‘In­dia, a sec­u­lar nation but a re­li­gious so­ci­ety’ (Gopalkr­ishna Gandhi, Septem­ber 9). We should learn from Ma­hatma Gandhi, who was re­li­gious but a staunch na­tion­al­ist, and also a godly fig­ure for the poor. Can we put our con­tem­po­rary lead­ers in the same cat­e­gory? In­dia’s politi­cians never re­mem­ber God when they in­dulge in cor­rup­tion. Even re­li­gious gu­rus, in their dis­courses, never put our na­tional in­ter­est above re­li­gion.
