As we all know, in India the logic for identifying something to be communal is very simple. If it is in anyway remotely connected to Hinduism is to be called 'communal' as we are a secular country. Our new Minister of State for Railways, Mian E. Ahmed saheb, has said/ordered that lighting of lamp, breaking coconut etc should not be done during Railways fuctions like starting new trains etc. According to his logic, these rituals are Hindu in nature and should not be performed in government functions of a secular country. What a noble thought! Folding of palms and saying Namaste is also a Hindu tradition. Ahmed saheb might soon ask all government officials, ministers, members of representative houses, judiciary, defense personnel not to greet each other with Namaste!!! Unfortunately well known dictionaries and thesaurus define Namaste as "Indian way of greeting". Ahmed mian will have to ask for corrections in all these references. Like this many Hindu customs have been accepted as Indian customs and tradition by the world at large. But our country has secular intelligentia for who de-Hinduising India is the mission of life.
