Vice Presiden M Venkaiah Naidu on Wednesday emphasised the importance of world peace for humanity’s progress and said that “terrorism, divisiveness and hatred have no place in a civilised society”.

Interacting with students of the Indian Institute of Democratic Leadership at Upa-Rashtrapati Nivas, the vice president said "India is the most secular country in the world and anybody, irrespective of his or her religion, could occupy the highest constitutional post. Emphasizing the importance of unity in diversity, he said that “share and care is the core value of Indian civilisation.”

The vice president decried denigrating any religion or religious icons saying it is against Indian culture. “One should not make any hate speech or derogatory comments against any religion. It is not acceptable”, the vice president added.

Expressing his concern over disruptions in legislatures, Naidu said the way forward should be to “discuss, debate and decide” and not disrupt.

He further said that parties should introspect whether they are strengthening or weakening democracy. He urged the media to refrain from highlighting unruly behaviour in legislatures, but to give prominence to constructive debates.
