There are many religious communities like Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs, Parsis, Jains, etc. In addition it has different customs and habits. Many political ideologies are also there in India. People in different states are different colours, appearances, habits, manners etc. Their dresses are different. Yet we Indians live as one. This is what is called “unity in diversity”. No outside force can split our oneness. National integration is bringing everyone together and sees that they are in harmony. It is the need of the house because there is always danger to out hard won freedom from within and outside. Since independence, Pakistan and china have become threat to our sovereignty and integrity. Pakistan is aiding the terrorists and threatening the country. Under these circumstances, national integration is important and obvious. India before independence faced divide and rule policy adopted by the British.
Through the British united India geographically, there was no integration among Indians who belonged to different religions and regions. The result was portion. However after independence India showed that it is secular. The country and its constitution have given importance to all religions. Right to freedom of religion is one of the fundamental rights. We should not allow the religious intolerance that sows the seeds of hate and makes the nation of face hazards of disintegration. Nationalism prompts to make every surrendered needed to make our country well-off and great and at the same time it should not allow the religious intolerance that sows the seeds of hate and makes the nation of face hazards of disintegration.
