Any Festival or Events celebrated or organized by any faith of people in India which brings people of all faith together and created a Harmony should be appreciated and supported by all and NO ONE HAS RIGHT TO BAN SUCH AN EVENTS OR CELEBRATION REGARDLESS FROM ANY FAITH. India needs such an events coz we live with so many faith and cultures. With these events, people learn each other faith and culture and ONCE YOU KNOW EACH OTHER CULTURE AND FAITH (Religion) YOU WILL FIND THE SAME MESSAGE IN ALL. LOVE HUMAN KIND. I am a Muslim, but I played in Ramleela a role of an Epic character this does not pronounce me a Hindu. Every person who lives and breath in India should know the 5000 years of History of this gigantic country otherwise I don't think you know India well. Proud to be an Indian. Jai Hind! Comment  #3
