“With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.” – Steven Weinberg

Humanity touched new heights when in an act of goodwill, Muslims in small town of Lonand, Maharashtra, decided to postpone Eid celebrations to Sunday because original date clashes with 1000 year old Hindu Tradition of Varkari.

Varkari is a Vaishnava religious movement inside of the bhakti profound convention of Hinduism. The Varkari custom has been a piece of Hindu culture in Maharashtra since the thirteenth-century CE, when it was framed as a panth amid the Bhakti Movement.

Since animal-slaughtering during Eid did not go down well with Pilgrims & age-old Varkari tradiations, Muslims decided to postpone the celebrations to Sunday as a goodwill gesture.

This should be a lesson for people across the globe who misuse religion to create division between communities.
