Describe communalism and secularism.
Communalism believes in the promotion of the interest of a particular religious community and not the general interests of all.

This is in contrast to nationalism which believes that the nation is above individual communities and represents the interests of all people including those who may not have any religion at all. This view is also called ‘Secular’ as it holds that the government should neither interfere in the affairs of a religion nor allow any religion to interfere with the government.

The radicals and radical organizations helped the freedom struggle to attain freedom. Explain it.
The period after 1940 was characterised by intensive activities of radical organisations like the Communist party, trade unions, women’s organisations, kisan sabhas and dalit organisations. They mobilised the poor and marginalized peasants and workers, tribals and dalits not only against the British but also against the local exploiters like moneylenders, factory owners and upper caste landlords. They were keen that in the new independent India their interests should be properly represented and their long years of suffering should end and they should get equal rights and opportunities. The national movement which was till then dominated by upper class people gained a new dimension and energy which eventually helped to throw out the British rule.
