Commentators have been warning about the "crisis of atheism" for a number of decades. For societies characterised by religious diversity, protecting the secular state from political religion is a question of survival. In this story, incidents of hatred and violence are cynically blamed on a failure to follow socially acceptable standards. Jakob De Roover argues against this effort to find an outside cause for the growing pressures on the liberal secularism paradigm. Taking a careful look at its history, which is entwined with the context of Western culture,

He highlights the significant internal problems with this paradigm. This book examines the liberal-secular model's applicability outside of Western societies, focusing on Asian societies that have traditionally tolerated greater levels of religious, racial, and cultural variety than European societies. This book examines how the normative model of liberal secularism crystallised in modern Europe and how it influenced the European view of Indian culture, using the limitations of the liberal model of religious toleration and the secular state as its focal point of inquiry.
