In a tolerant country like India, it is very much essential that all religious groups co-exist together. We can do this by respecting everyone’s views be they religious or political or general and letting everyone live peacefully and happily. It is not essential to always have dominance or control over others as this can again lead to dissatisfaction at individual and group levels. So, live and let live!
