India is a multi-religious society and the survival of such an overall population has been possible just it, all religions are given equal treatment with no help or detachment. The division of the country was obviously in light of religion and this was an eye-opener for the creators of the Constitution when they were involved with the errand of giving a strong shape to the constitution of our country. The composers of the Indian Constitution did not, expressly selected the idea of India to be a common state. “Secular” was not there in our constitution when it came into the being. It was in this way joined into the prelude of the Constitution by the 42nd Amendment Act of 1976. The formal thought of the elucidating terms “Common” is, generally, the outcome of meeting out the exigencies of the transcendent conditions, the need of gathering authoritative issues and ideological window-dressing. Somewhat, it similarly reflects the absence and nonchalance of the ideologues that they added it just to the presentation, and did not take think to accomplish sensible changes in the Constitution. It very well may be pointed out that the term used after “Communist” is drearily utilized as a socialist vote based state has on a very basic level to be normal. In the viewpoint of the diverse articles appearing to some degree III of the Constitution, one may state that India was by then a common state and there was no need of such development. It gave a rather false impression that beforehand India was not a common state.
