One can observe that our land has been an excellent example of multi-ethnic, multi-religious pluralistic co-existence from the very beginning of our history! A study of our history also shows that Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity and other beliefs have co-existed peacefully! We have braved conflicting ideologies, foreign domination together as a nation! Kings have been most magnanimous and respectful of everyone’s rights and freedom. It might be a good exercise to look back, study and emulate some of the noble qualities left behind by some of our noble rulers.
