No particular community should dominate over others in democratic nation

Dear Madam,
In a democratic diverse nation as multi-cultural as India, no particular community hold any moral claim to demand that one and only his linguistic/religious rights, ethos, culture is “superior” to the rest or should dominate over others.
Just like Yogi Adityanath and Asaduddin Owaisi forming very much part of the Indian scene; “Hindu Hriday Samrat” Narendra Modi to “Italian” Sonia Gandhi, Hindi to Kokborok, Hindu to Parsi, Jat to Jarawa, Ram to Bonbibi (Sundarban), Khaman Dhokla to Beef Steak, Sari to Burqa, Puja to Namaz, Ramnavami to Muharram, Kashi Vishwanath Temple to Jama Masjid to Assam’s Hajo (meeting ground of Hinduism Islam and Buddhism), Bhagvad Gita to Bible – – all form part and parcel of India giving it a composite hue.
So it is absolutely barbaric philistine dictatorial undemocratic to pinpoint any particular element (race, religion, language, attire, diet, prayer) as the sole representative of India in front of whom all citizens have to necessarily take a bow!
