Finest inheritance 'secularism' must be preserved: President

President Pranab Mukherjee in his address to the nation on the Independence day said that our democracy is creative because it is plural, but diversity must be nourished with tolerance and patience. "Vested interests chip away at social harmony, in an attempt to erode many centuries of secularism. The finest inheritance needs constant care for preservation," he said. He said our institutions of democracy are under stress. "The Parliament has been converted into an arena of combat rather than debate. If the institutions of democracy are under pressure, it is time for serious thinking by the people and their parties. The correctives must come from within," he said.
