No Right To Denigrate Others' Religious Beliefs, Says M Venkaiah Naidu

M Venkaiah Naidu, Vice President, spoke on Saturday about religious intolerance. He said that while one can be proud of and follow one’s faith, no one should denigrate another’s religious beliefs.

The Vice President’s Secretariat stated that the core values of Indian ethos are secularism, tolerance and acceptance of other views. Accordingly to him, even sporadic incidents can not undermine India’s dedication to pluralism or inclusion.

Ms. Naidu demanded that the nation remove all obstacles to the emancipation and empowerment of women. She stated that women still have a lot of potential in many fields, even though civilizational principles support equal participation for both men and women.

The Vice President spoke today at Mount Carmel College, Bengaluru to inaugurate the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. The Vice President explained how women can always excel in all areas of life.

He mentioned that India’s contribution in education has been exemplary since ancient times, earning it the title of Viswa Guru. Referring to prominent women scholars from India such as Gargi or Maitreyi in old India, the Vice President spoke highly of India’s educational history.
