Religious Education

Adam Paul Patteti (Author) Ismail Thamarasseri (Author)

The Education Commission (1964-66) said on Religious Education and Education About Religion; “We suggest that a syllabus giving all chosen information about each of the major religions should be included as a part of the course in citizenship or as a part of general education to be introduced in schools and colleges up to the first degree. It should be highlighting the fundamental similarities in the great religions of the world and the emphasis they place the cultivation of certain broadly comparable moral and spiritual values”. Dr. B.R. Ambedkar explains, “Secular state doesn’t mean that it shall not take in to consideration the religious sentiments of the people. That entire secular state means is that this parliament shall not be competent to impose any particular religion upon the rest of the people. This is the only limitation that the constitution recognizes.
