    Religion itself is to be the key resource in the struggle against communalism. State-centred theories of how to engineer the social good (the modern secular state) are themselves the problem, the stimulus behind communalism; to these must be counterposed the resources of a religiously suffused and religiously plural civil society.
    Here Indian anti-secularism can to some extent join forces with post- modernist celebrations of difference, diversity and pluralism, likewise located in civil society and threatened by the technocratic state.
