A newly wed couple was waiting for the society chairman. The couple was very eager to sign the house-agreement for their much-awaited dream home. After a long struggle with their parents to make their inter-religion marriage a success, they were heading towards their new life. With their hearts throbbing with excitement they were finally waiting to stay in this new home-sweet-home!
The chairman arrived. The big fat fellow sat on the chair. He wore specs and started reading the agreement paper which the owner of the house provided to him. He started reading line by line. He came across the first name Raj, he kept reading. But the second name, Nagma made him scowl. He looked up at the owner with his red eyes full of anger. “How dare you sell your house to a Muslim? ” The helpless owner tried to convince the society chairman but failed. This shattered the dreams of the couple.
When we share a country with diverse religions and communities and feel proud of our diversity why people are so unjust to their Indian brothers and sisters?
