        Good work by the police and a great credit to the idea of a secular India. Also very good to see the positive reactions to this article in the comments by readers. Unfortunately some have used this to make unfavorable comparisons between Hindus and Muslims. The point is not whether one is Hindu or Muslim or which of the two is better the religion of the policemen is not known anyway. The point is respect and courtesy to those of other faiths and about maintaining a mutually-helpful environment in our society. It is such an at ude of unity in diversity - not division - which will keep the nation united and make it great.

          HINDUS do this and much more ........................... Hindus can even join the EID NAMAZ with MUSLIMS but the problem is MUSLIMS as they will not reciprocate in a similar way. .............................. The way PA-KI MUSLIMS who were INDIAN MUSLIMS for 100's of years till 1947 have been treating PAK HINDUS in PAK who are a MINISCULE MINORITY of 2 PER-CENT indicates the actual mindset of MUSLIMS.

                Hats off to our Police. This will happen only in India, where all religions are so integrated and form one nation True India.
