Our country of India is a harvest land of diversity, where everyone lives with the brotherhood of unity in diversity despite having various differences in religion, caste, culture, culture and language. No other country in the world can see an example of such diversity.

It is the duty of all of us Indians to preserve and sustain such a great diversity of culture for the peaceful life of the people of India.

Every group of people living in this country has the right to maintain their unique religious belief, right of worship and culture, and they have the duty to provide an opportunity to maintain the belief, worship and culture of other religions.

Only with such a state can a peaceful environment full of love and cooperation prevail. The values ​​of religion, love, compassion, mercy, humanity, helpfulness, giving up, and tolerance are all high qualities that should be strictly adhered to in this country.

The City Police Commissioner was of the view to convene harmony meetings by different organisations which he felt is need of the hour. M. Abdul Hakeem, Event Coordinator, and Public Relations Secretary, Jamaat Islami Hind, Coimbatore made painstaking efforts in coordinating the journey for the peace event. Mr. P.S.
