Does the Shiv Sena's call for dropping the words 'secular' and 'socialist' from the preamble to the Constitution of India betray a Hindutva agenda?

First it was the ghar wapsi, and then it was the omission of the words 'secular' and 'socialist' from the preamble to the Constitution of India in a Republic day ad. While the government claims the two words were dropped erroneously, the Shiv Sena now wants to have them permamently deleted. It believes their exlusion would reflect the feelings of the people. Do you agree with the Shiv Sena or do you you think this is the latest in a string of developments designed to pursue a Hindutva agenda? Do share your views with us.
