“In our company we have three Sikhs and two
Muslims – two sweepers and three cooks; but we all eat together. Moreover,
we often eat food and drink tea prepared by Muslims. If you look at the
condition of things in this country you cannot but see that all men here are considered equal in the sight of God.”
