Indian Muslims' relationship with Hinduism, Hindu religious figures: Communal harmony project-31

These are the photos you may have often come across on the internet.

A Muslim woman, wearing a burqa, along with her child who is dressed as Lord Krishna.

On Janmashtami, I logged on to Twitter and saw Gautam Trivedi sahab's tweet.

Even if you have seen these photos many times, you feel happy to see them again.

These are all aspects from our daily lives. On one hand we hear stories of hate and discord on mass media.

But on the other hand we find such examples as innumerable Indians lead their lives in harmony, observing each other's faiths, finding nothing strange in celebrating festivals or dressing up their kids in accordance with a seemingly different culture.

Similarly, numerous schools that don't even have 5% Muslim children, are celebrating Eid every year!

These things may not be reported as much, but they need to be highlighted.

The other photos tweeted from the same account are also being posted here.

There are two more photographs below. In one of them, a Muslim couple is taking away their kid along, on the scooter.

Apparently, the child took part in fancy dress competition or was made to play Krishna's part in a school event. Another photo shows a Muslim woman, in veil, taking kids dressed as Lord Krishna.

Besides, there is another photograph that shows a Muslim teacher with the 'Bal Gopals. If anyone knows the persons who took these snaps, please do tell me, I would love to give the credit to the photographers.

[Harmony exists all around us but is often ignored. Instead, stories of hate, discord and communalism get spread easily.

There are a million examples in our daily lives across India but they don't get promoted, hence, news of hate and discord gets heard more. Let's change it, now. This is a small attempt to change it through Communal Harmony Project]
