Hindus and Muslims have been doing it since Islam made its way to India.
Islam is the second-largest religion in India, making up 14.4% of the country's population with about 176 million adherents.
Islam first came to India with Arab traders as early as 7th century AD to coastal Malabar. Islam arrived in 11th century to coastal Gujarat. Islam arrived in north India in 12th century with Turkic invasions and has since become a part of India's religious and cultural heritage. Over the centuries, there has been significant integration of Hindu and Muslim cultures across India and the Muslims have played a prominent role in India's economic rise and cultural influence.
Nothing new here.
Nice to picture it, though.
Occupational hazard when dealing with explosives.
