There was a time in India when Hindus used to participate in Eid and Muharram, while Muslims used to participate in Holi and Diwali.
Later, particularly after the Great Mutiny of 1857 the British and their agents sowed the seed of communalism into our society. This poison, injected year after year and decade after decade resulted in Partition in 1947 ( see my article 'The Truth about Pakistan' available online and on my blog justicekatju.blogspot.in, and B.N.Pandey's speech ' History in the Sevice of Imperialism ' available online ). Many elements in India are still spreading communal hatred to divide and polarize the people and thus secure their vote bank.
My effort has been to expose such communal ( and therefore anti-Indian ) rascals,and to administer anti-dotes to neutralize the communal poison in our body politic.
For this purpose I appealed to all non-Muslims to keep one day roza on 4th July which was during Ramzan. I myself have been keeping one day roza during Ramzan for several years. This is just as a token of respect and solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters. In my appeal I also requested non Hindus to keep one day fast during Navratri. The response to my appeal was overwhelming, and many Hindus and other non Muslims kept roza on 4th July
Some Hindus said that they would abide by my appeal and keep one day roza on 4th July, but added that they doubted that Muslims would keep one day fast during Navratri. However, many Muslims said that they would.
Navratri is starting on 13th October. I appeal to all non Hindus to keep one day fast on 13th October, or if for some reason that is not possible, on any other day during Navratri. You may ask your Hindu friends what you can eat and drink on that day.
By keeping one day fast you will not get converted from your religion. It is just a token of respect and solidarity with people of other religions, which is absolutely necessary to keep India united.
