Does the Secular State Breed Immorality?

Prof Bharat Gupt
For nearly two decades public life in India has seen unprecedented rise in corruption. Legislators, politicians, academics, professionals, bureaucrats, religious leaders, judges and the armed forces have all been accused of horrendous moral lapses.
The rise of immorality coincides with the preaching and practice of secularism by the Indian State which has kept religion out of the educational institutes and thus deprived full two generation of the moral values that religions teach.
Is secularism capable of presenting any set of moral values all by itself?
Please join the discussion following the talk.
