Can we have elections in India without the use of religion card?

India unfortunately is an illiberal society with a liberal democracy. People here are extremely emotional. Religion is something very close to people’s hearts even when it causes to become irrational. People here lack education and critical thinking is mostly not an acquired skill. Politics and religion are unfortunately intermixed in our society. The religion card is played to blind people from truth and reality and since no political party ever cares about this country, people are divided on the basis of religion,caste and creed. Politicians actually make money out of this irrationality. Educated and good people unfortunately never come to power in this country. The question should be whether we can rise above caste and creed and try to build a truly secular country
