Accepting one another

I saw this wonderful debate on TV tonight, it was something to do with women wearing burka and its religious undertones. Shabana Azmi, Kamala Das (Suriya) and many others were there. It was stunning. What I liked most was the way the debate was moved towards how we need to wrestle with such ideas in the market place without hurting one another. The dialogue method in a civilized society. The fundamentalists tend to get worked up too much and the liberals tend to take it to the other extreme. Its important for the society to continuously facilitate dialog between both these ends for civility to emerge.
