Pluralism on the other hand allows religious expression in public square; it's more of a culture than regulatory instrument. Pluralism is an attitude of live and let live, it is not state managed but individual choice of respecting the otherness of others. It is widely practiced in India and the United States, and to an extent in Bangladesh, Malaysia and Indonesia. You can commence your ceremony reciting from your religious scriptures without offending any. Although in the United States we still have a few bigots that oppose Hindu and Muslim practices, but their numbers are dying down.
Good piece to read.
Mike Ghouse, committed to pluralism
