Guwahati: Absolute secularism is the forte of our Indian Army, wherein equal respect is ascribed to all religions.

Everyone in the Indian Army be it a Hindu, a Christian or a Muslim attend all auspicious functions like Shabad kirtan, namaz, morning mass, or mandir parade together, as one unit.

An exemplary image of this religious harmony is currently going viral across the internet, showing a Hindu and Muslim soldier praying side by side.

An instagram user, who goes by the name power_beard, shared a heartwarming image on the platform, stressing how people of all religions co-exist in the Army.

The instagram user also revealed that both houses of worship (Puja Ghar and Namaz Ghar) are located under a single roof, next to each other, and are called as the "Sarv Dharma Sthal".

The picture posted by the user, quotes, "For those who didn't know, My unit has around 15 percent Muslims. All auspicious functions are started by a Pooja in the Mandir and a Namaz/ Dua in the Masjid. Both the houses of worship are always under a single roof and called a *Sarv Dharma Sthal*. Though we are in an undisclosed location, I couldn't resist sharing this great view of my two boys who are responsible for the respective temporary places of worship separated by a wall."
