This news is a glimpse of hope for communal harmony amid the turbulent few days.
Just a few days ago, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for the full respect of all religions and for ensuring that different communities can live in harmony and peace around the world, according to his spokesperson, Stephane Dujarric.
Guterres’ response comes amid communal tensions in Rajasthan following the killing of a tailor in Udaipur.
Dujarric stated this in response to a question about the UN Secretary-General’s reaction to the “resurgence” of religious tensions in India following the killing of Kanhaiya Lal.
After beheading Kanhaiya, the killers posted videos online claiming to avenge an insult to Islam, sparking sporadic cases of violence in the Rajasthan city, a portion of which was placed under curfew.
“We very much hope…We call for the full respect of all religions and for ensuring, throughout the world, that different communities can live in harmony and peace,” said Dujarric.
