Varanasi in the time of terror **

The following paragraph on the above subject, may not go down well with Bush, Rice and Co, and may not suit the designs which the west have for the sub-continent.
Vidya Subrahmaniam in The Hindu July 26, 2006
The Mahant and the Mufti jointly visited hospitals and attended to the comfort of the injured. Inspired by them, leaders from both communities, including a dozen or so Muslim clerics, followed suit.
Four months after the Mahant and the Mufti joined hands in an affirmation of Hindu-Muslim solidarity, the tentative "reaching out" has flowered into a movement the impact of which is plain to see. Joint campaigns, composite music festivals, seminars on communal amity, invitations to the Mahant from Muslims and to the Mufti from Hindus, and the incredible sight of burqa-clad women reciting the Hanuman Chalisa at the Sankat Mochan temple it is competitive secularism of a kind rarely seen, wonderfully elevating, and all the more special for daring to take root on holy soil defiled by terrorists intending to spread doubt and disharmony.
