Question 5: A. What we call “fundamentalism” has always existed in a symbiotic relationship with a secularization that is experienced as cruel, violent and invasive.
B. Historically, wherever secular governments were established to separate religion and politics, a counter-cultural movement developed in response, determined to bring religion back into public life.
C. In the developing world, secularization usually came with colonial rule; it was hence seen as a foreign import and rejected as profoundly unnatural.
D. All too often an aggressive secularism has pushed religion into a violent riposte.
The key ideas of the sentences are summarized as follows:
A - Fundamentalism and secularization always coexist. The secularization is seen as “violent, cruel and invasive” by the other side.
B- Historically, wherever an attempt was made to separate religion and politics, a counter-cultural movement sprung up.
C- Secularization came with colonial rule and was hence rejected in the developing world.
D- “Aggressive” secularism instigates a violent reply from religion.
