The only city in south of india to have had a strong muslim influence- Hyderabad, Andra Pradesh. The city today stands divided – old Hyderabad which retains the monuments, culture and dilect as left by Mughals, and the new Hyderabad – that houses Hubs of several Leading IT companies.
Created in 1591, the Charminar is one of the very few monuments in India which has common man walking past it every second. And the religion of this common man is not important as he makes his travel past this monument.
If the monument had a voice, it would ask the people around it be as tolerant as it has been, and ensure everyday on earth, there be no death or discrimination in name of religion.
