We get our strength from tolerance

  • Secularism and inclusion are a matter of faith for us. It is the perennial universalism of 1.3 billion people who use more than 122 languages and 1600 dialects, practise seven religions, belong to three major ethnic groups and live under one system.
  • Peaceful co-existence, compassion, respect for life and harmony with nature form the foundations of our civilisation. 
  • Manifestations of rage are tearing our social fabric. Every day, we see increased violence around us.
  • At the heart of this violence is darkness, fear, and mistrust.
  • We must free our public discourse from all forms of violence, physical as well as verbal. Only a non-violent society can ensure participation of all sections of people in the democratic process, especially the marginalised and the dispossessed.
  • We must move from anger, violence, and conflict to peace, harmony, and happiness.
