The progressive and genuinely secular forces in India need to recognize a bitter truth, namely that uncritically claiming a secular heritage from the national movement and the Constitution of India is to play a potentially losing game from the very beginning against their Hindutva opponents. What the progressive forces need to do is to project a truly secular and egalitarian perspective for India–a perspective which does not hesitate to subject the national movement for independence, its leadership and the existing Constitution of India to unwavering criticism where it is needed. It is from this perspective that the paper now subjects the existing Constitution of India to criticism over one of its flawed aspects, namely its Hindu bias.
