The way I understand it.. 'nationalism and patriotism' are not so  
bankrupt a phenomenon so as to be divorced of  'secularism &  
However, the figure of 'we' the 'suffer'ers in your argument is  
interesting. Is it geographically bound or otherwise? Whats the  
imagination of 'we'?
  Is it 'We' the Indians? Or 'We- The Hindu's"? Or ' We- Who hate all  
religions but our own' or 'We- who only hate Muslims and Christians'   
or ' We - who hate'  or  ' We-  In a bad mood today'?
