Heartwarming secularism

In response to my post praising Ramachandra Guha's article on the BJP, Atanu Dey writes in:
I agree with Ram Guha that BJP should treat all Indians equally regardless of their personal faith. I suggest that the BJP drop their opposition to a Common Civil Code for all Indians. I also support the Congress in their secularism and their insistence that people of different faiths should not be treated differently. I commend the Congress for not instituting subsidies for religious travel given to only some people based on their religion. It is heartwarming to see the totally unbiased opinion of secularists like Ram Guha.

Atanu, for those of you who haven't yet discovered him, run the blog Deeshaa, which won the award of Indiblog of the Year at Indibloggies 2004. Here's an interview of him on that site.
