India has set an important example of communal harmony to the world. It is the only country in the world where all religions and beliefs have been living in harmony for centuries. It is important for us to note that the Britishers in the pre-independent india has started the policy of divide and rule n for which they opted to break the communal harmony but in post independence India, despite of holocaust during partition there was no major riots
India, a multi-religious, multilingual and multi-racial country, has always enjoyed the essential unity of cultural diversities that kept the Indians united. After independence, narrow religious, regional and communal feelings raised in the country and day-by-day the intensity of this is increasing. The communal tensions and bloody riots that take place occasionally create a sense of mistrust among the religious communities involved in clashes. The country pays a heavy price for the disturbances through loss of lives and properties.
India was divided into two countries in 1947, but our national leaders were very particular about this, and took great care to establish a secular state, but we had some black sheeps then, who in many ways created hurdles .
Unfortunately, this traditionally peace-loving country is sometimes plagued by communal problems. It all happens as some fanatical zealots indulge in torturing the people of other religions. The alarming rise of fundamentalism is a great concern to the nation. Almost all the States of our country suffer owing to religious intolerance. Inter-communal relationships suffers due to this vitiated atmosphere. Our unity, integrity and solidarity is now at stake. It hampers the growth of the nation at every step. If the nation wishes to make sound progress in the socio-economic, political and scientific elements, communal harmony has to be ensured as a permanent feature of life. Evil forces trying to destroy this should be crushed at any cost. It is also our duty the spread the message of importance of communal harmony.
