i think most of the ppl of the secular country should have a common answer that in all govt owned bldgs any kind of religious symbols must be banned..and also i woild like to add is the funds and charity given to religious community must be equally divided b/w alll the religions ...not promoting one major religion of a secular country..

I believe that religious symbols should be banned in govt and public institutions of a secular nation. In India specially I see the images of so many gods and goddesses in public schools or police stations which should be banned totally. Public institutions and govt places are there to serve every Indian irrespective of there religious identity so one should not walk into a public school or police station and feel that its mainly for Hindus. Accepting all religions is definitely there but it should not spill over to public servants otherwise it creates a lot of problems as each religious group will then want to instill its own beliefs and practices in their daily conduct and we will have no discipline or unity.
