"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.
A Hindu temple in Chandni Chowk
Muslim Mosque in Fathpuri
Sikh Gurudwara in Chandni Chowk.
A Jain prayer place, Chandni Chowk.
St. Stephens's Church, Fathpuri.

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