Constitution guarantees it but because “secularism is in our DNA” It is the duty of the majority community to reach out to minority communities and it is the duty of minority communities to put the nation first he said Delivering the 10th annual lecture of the National Commission for Minorities on “Minorities in Nation Building” Naidu said “We laid the foundations of our nation 70 years ago and are constantly building India on the four important pillars given by our Constitution — Justice Liberty Equality and Fraternity… there is also secularism and socialism” But I think this country is secular not just because it is in the Constitution — that has its own place — but because secularism is in our DNA India was once known as Vishwa Guru” Naidu spoke about his allegiance to a dargah in

said “We recognised that as a nation the notion of pluralism inclusion and peaceful coexistence have to be the cornerstones of our governance Our Constitution makers have given us this grand vision of what our nation should look like In order to realise the vision over the last 70 years we have enacted legislation created institutions and embarked on a continuous quest to improve the quality of
