Book on Jawaharlal Nehru Released

The Vice President of India, M. Hamid Ansari has released the book “Jawaharlal Nehru and The Indian Polity in Perspective”, edited by Prof. (Dr.) P.J. Alexander, at Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala.

Shri M. Hamid Ansari said that the firm anchoring of Secularism as a core character of India polity is one of the most important contributions of Pandit Nehru.

The Vice President said that as one of the titans of the national movement and the first Prime Minister and architect of modern India, a discussion is required on Nehru, particularly in the backdrop of the dangers from religious superstition, obscurantism and fundamentalism at the present moment.

To examine the Nehruvian legacy is to renew our fight against religious deformations in thought and practice.
