A shadow of this debate got reflected on the pages of Indian Journal of secularism, some more material was especially solicited to complete the theme. The essays compiled in the volume take broad historical and contemporary issues to point out that democracy and secularism are not separable values; they are in-separable parts of the Indian Constitution and are the base of the values of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. The essays aim to provide the summary of debate in Indian scenario and aim to generate the debate to preserve these values in Indian Context.
