A business group with Hindu and Muslim members is an example of associational civic engagement where ongoing contacts between ethnic groups can serve to quell rumors and defuse tensions. Varshney compares Aligarh and Calicut, cities with very similar compositions of Hindus and Muslims, but differing levels of cross -cultural contact. Aligarh has a long history of communal conflict while Calicut has been largely peaceful.
