In a moment of respite during the Coronavirus lockdown, stories of communal harmony have been one of the biggest silver linings.
Recently, Muslim men lifted the bier of their Hindu neighbor Ravi Shankar in the absence of his relatives at Bulandshar in Uttar Pradesh. Shankar’s relatives couldn’t attend the funeral due to the current nationwide lockdown. Muslim neighbours, on seeing the plight of the grieving son, carried the body for the funeral and even chanted ‘Ram naam satya hai.’
