AHMEDABAD: The message of communal harmony will run deep in the colourful decorations, huge artificial structures resembling Mecca mosque and many things prepared to celebrate Eid-e-Milad. Muslim brethren of the city will display banners calling for communal accord among communities during a large procession to be carried out on the occasion.
To promote communal harmony in the city, banners bearing slogans of communal harmony will be displayed. “We wanted to highlight the philosophy of Mohammed, who had said ‘Rehmat’ (peace) should prevail in the whole world. There will banners containing sayings of the Prophet also in the procession in which more than 3,000 people are expected to participate,” stated JV Momin, chairman of the Eid-e-Milad central committee.

Perhaps to avoid the stigma that stuck to the Sangh Parivar in regard to the Mangalore communal violence a few months ago, the Parivar cunningly used the protest actions organised on January 19 by the Muslim masses against the hanging of Saddam as its starting point. On January 19 itself, a communal conflict erupted when two groups destroyed banners and festoons belonging to one another. Many vehicles were damaged, and lathicharge and firing had to be resorted. Inspite of such incidences of violence, however, the administration granted permission for holding the RSS’s Hindu Samajotsava and rallies.
This is good for India. Without Hindu Muslim unity we can not prosper. We have to keep away and defeat the forces which always try to divide us and try to get benifit out of that politically.
