It is beyond question that ‘our nation’ called India today is a conglomeration of several cultures and civilizations. Historically speaking, India witnessed several conquests and conflicts, accommodating different cultural persuasions that ensued in enabling the nation to have a diverse community. Despite this diversity, India was conscious of an integrated nationality. The explicit proof of this historical reality is the great national movement for freedom, which ultimately provided a distinct identity for India as a sovereign, secular-democratic nation. In other words, British colonial rule in India gave India a certain political structure that in a way paved the way for peoples of diverse cultural backgrounds to be woven into a united fabric: the Indian nation. Hence, by its Independence in 1947, India became not only the world’s largest democracy, but also a religiously pluralistic, culturally diverse and a constitutionally secular (secular in the sense a State which intends to treat all religions impartially) State. Therefore, the freedom movement or Independence per se was an important milestone, by which the majority of Indians together felt an emotional integration that they belong to each other in India.
