The biggest problem is the conception of the modern nation state which basically encourages individualism as it destroys the local communities and families to make the state stronger.
Secularism is basically nothing but worshipping the state. Western interpretation of secularism is that you separate the state and religion in order to make the state the religion. Whenever someone supports secularism, it's always from the position of the state in the sense that the state should not be influenced by religion (but no one says anything when state ideology tries to influence religion, pushing certain degenerate ideological trends into religion like pro-LGBT "Christian" "churches" etc.).
Modern state = powerful elite, powerful institutions, extreme legalism and extreme individualism. And on top of it, you're supposed to worship it, wave the flag, be a loyal servant, never question the institutions and procedures of the state etc.
