Communal animosity

This refers `Why the communal animosity' (Business Line, April 25). The writer has rightly stressed the need for Muslim leaders to come forward. It is unfortunate that there is no Muslim leader who has the courage to call a spade a spade and violence, violence.

To protect the secular fabric of the nation, all religious leaders must draw a line between religion and personal life. It is dangerous to ask Hindus to protect minorities on the one hand, and pamper minorities through vote politics. Secularism can exist only if there is equal treatment for one and all. Minoritism has killed the spirit of secularism.
