Tale of two muslims ..

As soon as the news chaneel flood themselves with the breaking news of wounded , marooned hapless victims and their near and dear ones .. after a bomb blast .. I devlop a desiderata for the contempt of a particular community ... i try to look in suspicious view to the whole commumnity .. but let me describe you two short paragraphs that may change my thought process ...
Last year in hyderabad .. I was travelling in a auto ..due to rush and traffic jam I asked the auto-driver about the significance of number 786 as he was a muslim .. and to my unexpected surprise he started his saying like " 786 in Muslim is quite simmilaar to OM in Hindu ." and then he gave me a vivid description about the significance of OM (not 786) which even I didn't knew .. he told me how OM can make me feel closer to the god .. how it can bring purification and sanguinity within oneself ... and then he related everything to 786 .. Here one muslim describing and teaching me Hinduism ... one of the greatest pillar of Indian culture , secularism (not pseudo-secularism as in politics ) ... This is what we call Indian diversity ...
The second story goes on .. In the evening whole of the Hyderabad was in red alert .. because there was twin bomb-blast in hyderabad(Lumbini and Gokul) ... and in that dreadful night I was on my on way to office at 11 for my night shift in a cab which was driven by a muslim driver .. when every other person will be looking at this particaulr community for all the bombblasts .. I was in the safe hand of a MUSLIM..
still do I need to fill in my heart a certain amount of hate ,contemt for my brothers .. my fellow Indians ..
