Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs come together to visit and pray at the Hazrat Baba Srotri mountain shrine in Himachal Pradesh.
Many Hindu shrines over 1000 years old are places of worship for Pakistani Hindus & Indian pilgrims. Recent efforts by land-grabbers to swallow temples was opposed by not just the Hindus but also Muslims and Christians.
“Without the sincere support of Muslims, we can’t dream of celebrating the festival in such a big way as the Hindu population is very few.”
Hundreds of Muslims in Orissa joined in the nine-day Jagannath chariot festival being celebrated in several villages and towns across the state.
From Makar Sankranti, Bhogali Bihu, Lohri, Pongal to Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi, a string of festivals lined up on Tuesday will make it a day of celebration of sorts for the city.
“Still in Walled city areas which has a mixed population you cannot differentiate between Hindus and Muslims even after playing garba for the whole night,”
