"Chandni Chowk, Delhi examplifies Indian heritage- respect for all religions" by K.J.S.Chatrath

Visiting Chandni Chowk and Fatehpuri in Delhi last year on a Sunday morning, I saw the happy confluence of composite Indian culture. Religious prayer halls of different religions - Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Jain and Christian, all located in a small less than a kilometre area. And respecting the presence of each other and its adherents.

Shame on those who try to divide the Indian heritage on the basis of difference in religions and cultures.
