Discussion, debate, dissent are essential facets of democracy: Pranab Mukherjee

Discussion, debate, dissent are essential facets of democracy: Pranab Mukherjee

New Delhi, Sep 22 (UNI) Former President Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday said that discussion, debate and dissent were essential facets of democracy.

Inaugurating the diamond jubilee celebrations of Delhi University's Dr Zakir Hussain College (Evening), here on Saturday, Mr Mukherjee, however, pointed out that disruption was also becoming prevalent and should be barred from entering the system.
Emphasising the cultural diversity of the country, Mr Mukherjee said that India's diverse culture and languages were its identity.
“In our time, every single product-- from fountain pens to ink pots--were imported, but today India is making its own satellites which is a huge step towards a greater future,” he said.
Congratulating the College for completing 60 years since its inception in 1958, he applauded the institute for its relentless efforts in maintaining the ``Ganga-Jamuni tehzeeb'.
He extolled youth to utilise the empowerment education provides to transform India into an equitable society.
Among those present on the occasion were Delhi University's Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Tyagi and College Principal Masroor Ahmad Beg.
Dr Zakir Hussain College is one of the oldest educational institutes in Delhi. It was established as a Madarsa by Ghaziuddin F. Jung in 1780 on the outskirts of Ajmeri Gate.
It acquired the status of a Delhi University College in 1825 under the administration of the East India Company.
