In 6th photo, it is said that these kids are indian hindu kids. Did the photographer asked all kids their religion before taking that pic?

"Indian Hindu children enjoy a camel ride on the banks of the holy Yamuna River during the final day of Chhath Puja festival in New Delhi." In India, we do not add religion suffix here and there. They are Indian children and having a great time!

Why do you have to characterize children as Hindu or Muslim? They are Indian kids.
