Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh), May 5 (ANI): Keen to reduce the differences between Hindus and Muslims, craftsmen in Uttar Pradesh's Varanasi have made a flag symbolizing communal harmony.

"The Hindu-Muslim differences should lessen down. The differences, which are created in our hearts by the politicians and Muslims, are always termed, as militants. So, all these misunderstandings, which are created by the politicians, should be finished," said Mohammad Shamin Raza, one of the flag makers.

"Keeping all these aspects in mind, we made this flag," he added.

The flag is made of three colours green, white and saffron.

This flag has been made with lot of enthusiasm, as the workers assert that it would be a strong message for Hindu-Muslim unity.

"The flag is made up of three colours. The green colour symbolizes our religion i.e., Islam, white colour symbolizes peace and saffron is the colour of Hindus. All the colours will send a healthy message," said Azam Ali Bhutto, another flag maker.

"In our group also there are both Hindu and Muslim workers, but we work together and everybody cooperates among each other," he added.

The flag costing Rs 1,50,000 would be given to the holy shrine of Varanasi on June 5. (ANI)
