Over the past 48 hours I travelled between 2 major Indian Cities. I saw no lynch mobs. I saw nobody baying for anybody’s blood. What I did see is an outpouring grief over President Kalam’s death. I saw citizens and businesses of their own accord put up banner displays along the roads expressing their condolences and celebrating the life of Dr. Kalam. The Memon Hanging as far as the vast majority of Indian Citizens goes was a mere footnote as they went about their lives with a “presumption of legitimacy” that the Courts know what they are doing. I did not see any signs of a “dangerous social division”. Instead what I did see was an outpouring of grief from majority Hindu India over the death of a Muslim. I caught images of crowds flooding the funeral of a Muslim. I saw this riveting image of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi touching the feet of 99 year old Mohammed Muthu Meera Lebbai Maraicker.
