India is a land of many religions which, for the most part, exist in harmony. This man wears the taqiyah, the traditional Muslim hat, along with a beard of appropriate length for his belief system. In my opinion, the ability of religions to coexist in harmony is a strength of this vast and diverse country.
I wish my own country could see beyond their prejudices and embrace the diversity rather than marginalize anything that is not Christian in orientation. One does not have to agree to try and understand another human being. Understanding is a virtue of the strong. Exclusion is a hobgoblin that signals weakness.
