Communalism will never flourish in India:Fatehpuri Masjid
New Delhi, Mar 10 (UNI) Describing India as a "beautiful bouquet of colourful flowers", the Shahi Imam of the Fatehpuri Masjid, Mufti Mohammed Mukarram Ahmed today said that attempts by some sections to spread hatred amongst Indians would not succeed.
In his Friday speech, the Muslim scholar and educationist, condemning the blasts in Varanasi, said ''there are several religions in India and all religions when combined, convert our country into a beautiful bouquet of colourful flowers. We will not allow anybody to spoil it at any cost.'' Referring to Tuesday's blasts in Varanasi's Sankat Mochan Temple, Dr Ahmed said that ''such brutal attacks are a serious violation of religious sanctity of a place of worship which must be stopped.'' Stating that ''Indian citizens are always in favour of peace, love, brotherhood and communal harmony,'' he appealed to the public to maintain harmony and tolerance.
