Ours is most secular country in the world
Citizens live under one umbrella though they differ in caste, caste, creed, languages, and customs. All in India enjoy the functions and significant occasions of each religion be it Hinduism, Islam, Sikhism, Parsi, Christianity.

INDIA CAN be considered the most secular country in the world. It is apt to say, "Sare jahan se accha hindostan hamara, hum bulbulein hain us ki voh gulistan hamara..." In July, 2012 when Pranab Mukherjee was sworn in as the President of India, the world witnessed:


A Parsi Chief Justice Kapadia swore in a Brahmin President Pranab Mukherjee - even as a Muslim Vice President Hamid Ansari; a Sikh Prime Minister Manmohan Singh; an Italian-born Catholic chairman of the ruling party Sonia Gandhi; a Dalit Speaker of the Parliament Ms Meira Kumar; a Sikh Chief of the Indian Army General Bikram Singh; an Anglo-Indian Chief of Air Force Air Chief Marshal N.A.K. Browne; and a Hindu Chief Of Indian Navy Admiral Nirmal Kumar Verma - watched the cermony. What a fantastic moment it was, wasn't it?

In our mahaan country India, which is among the most democratic nations in the world, the citizens live under one umbrella though they differ in caste caste, creed, languages, and customs, etc. All enjoy the important religious occasions of each religion e.g. Hindus (Diwali, Holi ), Muslims (Eids), Sikhs (Guru Nanak's Birthday), Parsi (New Year Parsi Day), Christians (X’Mas ), and Buddhists (Lord Budha's birthday), etc. They live gracefully and peacefully. This is what we call unity. I am sure none of the countries in the world can match us for such unity. In fact, can’t think of any.
