    All Indians especially Mangaloreans have been living in perfect communal harmony. It is only politicians who create communal hatred for the sake of vote bank.

    People always fail to notice that not every catholic is a missionary, not every muslim is a jihadist and not every hindu supports hardcore hindutva. There are always some people who are responsible for creating instability in the name of religion.

    Hindus and Christians have been living in harmonious environment in this part of the world from ages. May a fact which many might not have noticed is that there are are no religious restrictions in both these religions to respect the believers of different faith. It is not haram, neither against the religion. Long live this bond!

    We have seen such harmony often from one sided only whether it be from Christian community or Muslim community but hardly extended by people from majority community during the celebrations of the festivals of minority communities just because of the threats from rightwing groups.
