Rajasthan's Barmer gripped by communal tension, religious harmony appealed
The derogatory comments and posts hurting the sentiments of two religious communities on social media sites have caused communal tensions in certain areas of the district. It has been reported that on July 10, the Barmer SP took the matter under his control and deployed additional forces in the sensitive areas as a preventive measure.

The police have registered a case and have taken the accused into custody. However, the resentment and commotion is persisting. Efforts are on by the religious community leaders to keep people calm and to resolve the situation amicably.

"Religious harmony in India needs to be restored which is also supported by the secular Indian Constitution. Of late, religious divide has increased and communal riots have taken place in many places. New education policy, which is on the anvil, is the only hope for the young to be educated with equity and inclusion," said Jaipur-based educator Prabha Kishore.

Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, recently said in the US that the world needed to seek inspiration from India which had maintained religious harmony for over 2,000 years. He was of the view that genuine practitioners of any religion would never believe in violence and killings.
