There should be no intolerance in educational institutions: President Mukherjee

AMN

prez MukherjeePresident Pranab Mukherjee today said there should be no room for intolerance, prejudice and hatred in educational institutes which should act as flag bearers for coexistence of multiple views.

Addressing a special convocation of the University of Mumbai to confer Honorary Doctor of Law to famous agriculture scientist M S Swaminathan, he said the higher education sector has a crucial role in national developmental effort.

Mr Mukherjee said that free conversation and even argument should be embraced, leaving behind narrow mindsets and thoughts. The lesson for a modern Indian university is to ensure that this great tradition finds new life and vigour within its precincts.

The President also received the first postal stamp released here on the occasion of the university completing 160 years this year. He said, higher education institutes must act as flag bearers for coexistence of multiple views, thoughts and philosophies.

Emphasising upon the importance of higher education on the economy, the President said that the quality of training provided to students employed by the economy determines the level of its competence. Mr Mukherjee said, courses in the campuses must be aligned to the needs of the industry.
