Good afternoon friends.

I would like to tell something about this.

Yes, India is a soft country but it's not meaning that India is tolerated every time, but in India when some one done some crime then not like other countries India direct decide to punished first Indian constitution allows that first proof, that crime don by that person even though chance give to that person that he prove himself as right person. After that India will decide that that man punishable or not.

2. Give any one chance for anything its show Indian keep in mind everyone rights.

3. Indian soft nature shows that India accepts all people not only India constitution also belonging constitution of peoples of any countries.

4. It also shows why India called as a country of piece and India is ready for leading the world.

Yes, India is a soft nation. There are certain reasons which symbolise the softness of our nation, they are:

1. It deals all the criminal issues by analysing it to its depth, which takes time & still, soft decision is taken.
2. The government is quiet polite towards the culprits & give them a chance to change themselves.
3. The country is well known for non-violence & peace-loving from early years before the independence of India.
4. The terrorist is also given a long duration to surrender, then a final decision is made.
5. India's relation with other countries also shows about the softness of the nation.

Yes, we definitely considered India is a soft nation than others. It is just because we do not believe in violence we believe that every solution can be solved by peace and talks. So many examples like we also give a chance to prove his innocent as well as a terrorist to save his life before death. It is our moral values and ethical values that we do not believe in violence since from ancient and very long period. If someone (Pakistan Taliban) thinks that India is kind hearted and soft and they can do whatever they want to create violence in our nation. It is their mistake because we are soft by nature but for our motherland, we can give an appropriate answer to enemy surgical strike on Pakistan is an example of this. Our Indian philosophy believes that we should go on developing rather than to deal with unnecessary issues. First development than common issues and problems live and let the other life peacefully.

Hi everyone,

India is a very soft nation because India is that type of country in which place if a criminal does a crime then that criminal will hang after 5 to 7 years of his/her crime. First of all here emotion matters a lot here which is not happening in other countries like the US, UAE because they act like cruel.

Yes, I agree with this statement. India is a soft nation. So many criminal activities are going around society. Law is not punishing them for that crime. Eg. : Delhi rape case, public harassment of women.

Indian law should implement some hard rules as punishment. So that at least for few the law will be useful.

So, I conclude by saying India is a soft nation.

India is a rich diversity of religions, cultures and above on those lies the ultimate respect for everyone. Indian system is designed so by taking in mind the faiths of various cultures and people. Our Country is rich in all these aspects which make it diverse and different from others.

Laws and Acts in our country are passed by taking in mind the sentiments of peoples attached to it. Every decision in India is taken on the aspects of each and every people.

Thus, India is classified as a soft nation.

First of all, we need to define the meaning of softness. Softness means the capability to forgive someone for their mistakes and allow everyone to do what they want in this condition yes India is a soft country but we should remove this softness for the fast growth of the country. We have a tendency to forgive some extream mistakes made by our neighbour countries and our political leaders who are corrupted and we also have the tendency to fight election of the religious topics and all the happening freely in our country so that means we are a soft country.

As per my view, I can put India in soft nation category. In India, everyone has right to follow their own culture, their own religion, their own languages etc. If you move around your nearest where ever you are living currently then you'll get that after some distance only languages are changing, cultures are changing and so many things keep on changing but there is no any clash among them. All are happy with their living standard. Yes, there is always some exceptional case but it is not enough to defeat the tag of soft nation.

Subhash Garg said: (Mar 8, 2017)  
This is the ridiculous question I have ever seen because it does not define what a soft nation is. Is it a land of soft soil instead of rocky terrain like Japan? Then, yes it's very soft.

In my opinion, softness is not a desirable quality of a country or a civilization. Hardness - meaning determination, discipline, organization, achievement, self-defense, for example - is much better. By that standard, the original Hindu India was not hard, it was soft; that's why everyone from Alexander to Clive manipulated and conquered us, and the Muslims and the Brits became our masters. That is disgraceful for a land of heroes from Rama, who destroyed an evil king despite a severe lack of resources, Hanuman, who never met an obstacle he couldn't conquer, and Krishna, who led Arjun into battle against his own people because they were corrupt, to Guru Gobind Singh who turned the tide against Mughals. India ought not to be a weak country; it ought to be strong. Indeed it is getting stronger.

Despite India's underdeveloped countryside and stuck-in-time cities, it has gone to the Moon and Mars and it has made great progress in agriculture, manufacturing, IT and services. A soft or weak country can't do all that. India is a country of hard, strong, irrepressible people, but it's run by self-centered, extremely corrupt and lazy politicians, and their sons and (sometimes) daughters. It is dynastic rule that is killing India. It's political drama that keeps Indians in India shackled, while Indians in foreign countries move so fast that they leave other foreigners - as well as the natives - behind.

In summary, India is not, and should not be a soft i.e. weak country. Its people are determined and resourceful. Its leaders to date have been selfish and corrupt, but that is now changing. It is to be hoped that India's political leadership will allow Indians to achieve their potential.

Hello friends,

According to my point of view, India is a soft nation, we maintain a good relationship with other countries and we allow the people with different cultures, religious and languages depends up on their own interest and also provide equal rights to all, it makes people feel comfortable on their own way. Our constitution it self-reflect the soft nature of our nation, but in some aspect this soft nature increases the crime rate in our country, so to decrease the crime rate and increase the peace in our country we are hard to implement the rules strictly to make our nation safest in the world.

Yes, of course, India is a soft and open-hearted country as from ancient time India allowed Mughals to rule and then a British ruled India for many years and first revolt against British was at 1857 after 100 years of rule, India easily gave part of India to Muslim majority (now called Pakistan).

Yes, I think India is a soft nation. Why?because in India we can see emotional intelligence is high in the mindset of the people. They can be easily motivated by any one. Lack of logical mindset was taking our country to a cave of soft nation. It is worth saying that only people are responsible for this condition. But softness is not always bad because softness is very essential for a country, if not then we are on the way destruction. So there should be a balance in softness and hardness.

Hello friends,

In view of everything, I can say that India is a soft nation before independence but not after independence. Because we always say that we are democratic but not in reality due to this corruption and more criminal activities going on India. Though there is a demonetization but no one are supporting it by knowing also it is very useful in future. Moreover, the corrupted persons are out but there is no action regarding them. So I conclude that though India is not harmed for other countries but it is harming its own country for benefits to other countries.

According to me, India is not a soft nation. Till now we have a good relation with other countries like US because we have interest in maintaining peace and rising concern about security issues in Asia.

Now-a-days situation is getting drastic on LOC. Every day there is a ceasefire violation from Pakistan because of this lots of soldiers lost their life for our motherland. They are mutilating the soldier's body which is very sad for us. The main problem is that when some leaders are taking the action towards terrorism. Then opposition party wants proof about the operation. They are asking the question about army authentication. The surgical strike shows that India is not a soft nation but it is getting soft because of some corrupted leaders in our country. They are not doing anything and they are not encouraging others to do.

3. Our country supports other nations so mutual relationship exists.

4. We never wanted to start war with others like Pakistan.

5. We have an education system in a righteous way for developing individual abilities.

Negative aspects:

1. Still reservation system exist based on casteism.

2. We will never do justice for girls in criminal cases. (hope you understand).

No, India is not a soft nation. The criteria Indian government and constitution have to Indian students for their future is worst i.e., based on caste system. OBC, ST, SC and the poorest condition holder general. If any general student is getting good percentage in competitive exams he/she have less chance of getting select in that exam or if by luck he/she have selected then there is a chance of getting low ranked college but in contrast if any student of other castes have scored less percentage then definitely he/she is going to get a better college. You yourself think if in any person or student have started to do illegal works or became a thief [general or more talented or the student who had scored good percentage] and the student who have scored less percentage or considerable marks or the passing marks in that exam have become a police officer and have to catch that thief then at that time who will use his mind accurately the thief or the police officer.

Once one Indian asked one American that how your country is so progressive and not mine then he said because of only your country then Indian asked how then he said that the talent students from your country are used to come to my country and you keep your reserved ones.

Then say how our country can be a soft nation as it is treating good with one caste students and playing with the future of other castes students.

Yes, absolutely. I have no doubt about India's softness.

Surely it has two sides as my earlier friends say.

So if we take the positive one which describes things like helping other countries, full freedom to all kinds of citizens, peoples never speak through there high voice they speak through there actions like ISRO who made so many achievements,

Now let just talk about negative things. Not taking serious action against Kasab.

Religious problems like SC categories have to pay less fees in every part of living expenses like college fees, exam fees for different central departments vacancies, in traveling, they also required less percentage for every sector, it should not be like this because if someone has maximum marks and from poor family but he belongs to some open or OBC category still at that time preference is given to that SC guy. Is it right? at least this religion should not come into our educational system because it helps to grow the distances between religions. I think this system must change, if it is then just thinking about the one who has percentage will go forward and will do much better so that's why I think our country is too soft.

2) India is deep rooted with corruption which is happily acceptable by the Nation. For instances 2g scam, AWG scam, mining scam etc which has cost India thousand of crore rupees.

But India is that kind of nation whill will not bear any kind of violent activities against its citizens. Now our country has anti ballisti missiles, guns, our army is well trained and always ready to give answer against anti social activities.

Hello everyone,

After reading all the opinions, I think everyone has their own stand on this. But according to my knowledge India is a soft as well as a hard nation.

Soft because India is a sacrificing and tolerating country. When we see our history there are many intelligent minds who fought for our country and sacrificed their lives for the Indian freedom. On the other side India maintains the peace with all the countries, it welcomes all the foreigners, receives them as a guest people in India has a great family relationships.

While coming to hard, there are some of the social evils which are still making India as a developing country like dowry system, caste system, corruption in all sectors. Women domination etc. India becomes a perfect nation when Indian citizens know their responsibilities, when they come out of these social evils.

For example When Pakistan abuse Bangladesh when they are together. At that time our PM Indira Gandhi take an initiative to give the separate nation to Bangladesh.

This is not a question which is dichotomous. It has several constraints and without discussing them we can't conclude how is our stand towards combating terrorism. India has zero tolerance policy towards terrorism and it is because of our affirm actions that we remain safe from these terrorists even having such a neighbor which indulges in promoting terrorist activities towards our us.

We are termed as the soft nation because it is felt that we let them go on various occasions, but it's not the case, we can't handle every situation in the same manner. We need to have a thorough understanding of the situation and proceed with those actions which suit it in the best manner.

Hello, everyone!

I am in favor of the topic. Yes, India is a soft nation in more senses than one. As an Indian, I am proud to say that I belong to a country that does not promote violence by attacking other countries, even when targeted upon, treats guests as God and is in favor of helping other countries in need.

But it pains me deeply, that my country cannot stand up for her women, for the soldiers who fight to protect her, for the heroes who work hard to put her name on the global map. It is disappointing that India is nowhere next to where she should be, considering the immense potential in India.

However, looking at the past and the history India has, I am confident we are looking at a bright future :).

As per my view, yes India is a soft country. It believes in peace and harmony. It has never initiated any fight by itself. It is rarely been heard that India has ever been involved in any of the terrorist attacks. But whenever any other country has needed any help India has been ahead of helping them. Taking an example of J&K. Though these people want to be separated yet at the time of help it was India only who offered for help in the time of need and adversity.

So India is a soft nation but it can be hard and rough if the situation demands so.

There are some more areas where India needs to be strong like taking decisions quickly and providing justice to the victims as soon as possible especially rape victims.

In my view, INDIA is a soft nation because it's around 125 crore mixed religion peoples living in this country India is a one and only country in all around the world this much of different religions peoples living our country is always trying to be a soft nation. Due to bad politics, it becomes a hard nation if you examine certain recent incidents in JNU university, Hyderabad central university, NIT Srinagar etc besides all these university incidents most of the politics involved. Certain parties play politics mixed with some students who are worked for politicians. If such incidents again repeated the education system in India may collapse everyone has looked into this what is the reality and try to solve problems in a systematic way then only our country becomes SUPER POWER.

INDIA is becomes a strongest economy in the world recently the number of billionaires in our country has also increased like this corruption also increased due to politicians if you seriously looked this one how to cross the country with thousands of crores loan with banks even he don't bother about notices also what is doing the govt and system fist of all we have to change our system if we cannot change our system it is very hard to become and be a soft nation.

In future, we have to fight with climate change, terrorism, water wars etc. If we solve out common problems 100% we succeeded with this calamities so for this it is necessary to become a soft.

Actually, there is a certain dilemma of whether our country is actually a soft nation or not. Cause while stating the point that India is a soft Nation, I should not forget the 26/11 attack, if India would have been a soft nation, then it won't be possible to recover from such miserable, drastic and painful circumstances.

So proud of being an Indian and we are hard enough guys. India has so many power weapons, nuclear missiles, which can destroy our enemy country within seconds, but India just trying to bring everything under mutual harmony. Hope these mutual understanding amongst us and our enemy country would protect us from any other future violence.

In India various countries people are living. In India so many politicians are doing corrupted things they cannot punish that is disadvantage for India.

No, according to me it will be wrong to say that India is a soft nation, actually all these depends on the political will which reflect view of the nation but as overall we can't say that India is a soft nation. When it comes to give the reply to terrorism or cease fire violation we will no longer remain the soft nation, so according to me though India doesn't start the violations but while giving the replies to their enemies it is not soft nation.

We can see the war of India Pakistan in 1965, evolution of Bangladesh in 1971, Kargil war etc, and and coming to the internal matters it's Judicary take all the necessary action to give the justice to each we saw the cases of Suresh Kalmadi, Asaram Bapu, Yaakub Menon instead of their caste, racism, religion judgement comes, so saying saying India is soft nation will not be justifiable.

I think any country is soft or hard is decided by the their peoples democrat and rule to punish a culprit. India is not a soft not hard, it is a notion of corrupted people & politicians.

1 - In case of Yakub Memon who involved in Mumbai blast every politician try to make his political profit by supporting Yakub Memon Yachika. No body thinks about the damage of country by this blast.

2 - If a common men goes in any government office then no officer do the work without any bribe.

3 - I think punishment for crime in India is only for a common men. Because in this country a celebrity and politician never get punishment for their crime they do.

Due to the all above reasons I think that it is a corrupted country, efforts are made to reduce the corruption. But I think it is not possible because we have political parties who are thought for their own party and interest, they do not think about the country.

I would like to say a few word on "is INDIA is a soft nation ".

According to me India is soft nation in some cases and hard in some cases. Actually it depends on the time and mostly it depends on the people and govt representatives who were living in this country as they are the part of the country.

There are few aspects by which we can say that India is a soft nation.

1. We live in the world which was inspired by great leader mahatma Gandhi which is non violence, so we the people of India will max try to avoid wars with the other countries. Because we know that the wars brings nothing except the decremented in the nation treasures and economy.

2. We try to maintain peace with the other countries in many ways as we know that India gives or provide home to many people from many countries.

There are some other aspects by which we can say that India is a hard nation.

1. As I previously told that soft or hard depends on the people and govt representatives living the country in past days we have seen many sexual activities, illegal trades, eve teasing and many other by this one can tell that India is a hard nation.

By this I conclude that in many ways India is a soft nation. We have to be proud that we were born in this great country.

1. India has various religious and group which doesn't let the leaders to take some hard decisions like on Kashmir issue after winning the war India can vacated the Pakistan occupied Kashmir but we didn't that soft behavior of India is paying off in terms of cease fire violation everyday in Kashmir.

2. There are various other issues like women harassment, eve teasing, rape cases etc on which we soft stand that lead to increase the no.of such cases.
