- The Party
The Indian Christian Secular Party is launched and nurtured by the Christian Social Forum (CSF). Like the CSF, the ICS Party is committed to promote unity, preserve identity, and protect the socially disadvantaged groups and empower them socially, to lead a life of confidence and dignity which is the hallmark of this movement.
History is the philosophy of nations. And the ICS Party has a very clear conception of Indian history. Here was a great civilization whose influence and imprint spread from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, from south to north, from one side of the coast to the other. It withstood the storms of invaders and British colonization. It fought and resisted external oppression and its essential civilization and culture survived great challenges and attempts at effacement. The glory of Christian Missionaries and the committed efforts of social revolutionaries like William Carey and Mahatma Jyotirao Phule respectively, are testimony to the upliftment of socially disadvantaged groups who have been suppressed right from the Aryan invasion.
In more recent times, this torch of Integral Humanistic Nationalism and Humane identity was carried forward by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar and the Blessed Mother Teresa. From 1510 A.D until the present century the Christian Missionaries’ contribution to India’s Nation building has been carried out by a large number of Christian Ministries, Associations, Missionaries, Societies and others. The CSF, founded in 2013 sees itself as the legatee of this historic movement.
The ICS Party’s philosophy, vision, mission and values relate to all Indians, irrespective of religion, caste or color. To the ICS Party all Indians, irrespective of religious background, are equal.
