"Hindus, even the most cultivated, have their aims and energies easily misdirected by false appeals to their very volatile feelings; and just because they are without the innate sense of discipline peculiar to Anglo-Saxons we can conceive that there might be circumstances in which it would be necessary to apply rules that would be utterly unreasonable in Great Britain. But we must always look upon such measures as temporary precautions. The central fact, and, we must add, the great disappointment, of the situation in India is that there has been no moral progress comparable with the intellectual progress. Western ideas and methods of thought have spread and have destroyed the ancient creeds, and, while the moral props have thus been removed, nothing has been substituted for them. Government has strictly fulfilled the letter of its law, that it would remain neutral in questions of religion. Education in India is secular, not because any Englishman of sense believes in education without religion but because Great Britain promised - an intention admirable and necessary in itself - neither to take the part of any one religion as against another, nor to force the Christian religion upon an unwilling people." - from The Spectator, January 1, 1910, page 7
To-day, though, more than a few Englishmen believe in education without religion; is that not senseless?
