Patriotism without Nationalism

In defence of secularism
  • Nitin Pai, director of Takshashila Institution, says that Nationalism without liberalism is a monster.
  • According to him, “Indian nationalism has been liberal in nature. The signature of the freedom movement was to expel the British, without hatred.
  • We are liberal to varying degrees. We are nationalistic and patriotic to varying degrees. Some may be more liberal, others might be more nationalistic, but most of us are both.”
