Harmony in the heart of India

The celebration of a victory over Mughals in the Muslim heartland of the Capital might come as a new story in the current time of religious hatred and the apparent loss of communal harmony.
Resetting this stereotype, scores of Muslims and Sikhs alike will congregate in the Muslim Chandni Chowk to mark the anniversary of Sikhs defeating the Mughals.
It comes as a surprise in this day where communal disharmony rules the roost that members of a particular community go out of their way to mark the defeat of what probably could their own ancestors.
It is also heartening to see that apart from the imminent discord between two communities in many areas of the country, Muslims and Sikhs are setting a precedent to promote harmony among the communities in the heart of India’s Capital.
It is high time that India learns from this famous locality about how to co-exist in harmony and even celebrate the pangs of defeat.
