The constitution of India declares India as a Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic republic assuring its citizens of justice, equality and liberty. Trend of the day is all the words have been cliched, misunderstood and misconstrued.
Secularism – a system of political or social philosophy that rejects all forms of religious faith and worship. Is India a Secular nation or being played on the basis of vote bank politics.
Democracy and Secularism are being misunderstood as cliched words that are just adjectives for our nation. Time we lend our ears to the actual values that the country lives for.
Ajith’s typical frank talk related to the Vishwaroopam issue
Ajith has come out with a scathing statement questioning the state of democracy in the country. He believes that words like sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic are grossly misunderstood and misconstrued in the current scenario.
He wondered if India is really a secular country what with the vote bank style of politics, which is in vogue today. This statement comes in the wake of recent events where Kamal Hassan’s Vishwaroopam is being prevented from releasing in Tamil Nadu by certain Muslim political outfits.
Ajith feels it’s high time that we subscribed to the country’s actual values of justice, equality and liberty to all. The star has minced no words and made his disappointment clear.
