Festivals: Unifying Hindus and Muslims
Regardless of the relationship between Hindus and Muslims in the political arena today, Yunus from Meerut is a torchbearer of ‘Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb’. His family traditional business is preparing Holika,Rawan, kanwar etc during Hindu festivals. Md. Suhail his son is also proud of his family tradition and wishes to carry forward the legacy.
Yunus and Suhail are perfect examples for their role in the unification of two of the most talked-about religions of India. The idea is rooted in the combined values that people of a nation grow up, come together to live in the same society and celebrate each other’s festivals, their lifestyles merge into a syncretic way of living in when there is an assimilation of different beliefs.
India exhibits and has always exhibited religious syncretism.
