Speaking on the occasion Mr.Nawabzada Mohammed Asif Ali, Dewan to the prince of Arcot stated that "No religion will teach you to hate another religion.
If any religion teaches you to hate another religion, you have to leave that religion and choose another religion". Children should understand we are living as one and will always be one. We are being divided in the name of religion . There is no Hindu, Muslim or Christian. Whatever are you, it is a personal choice. If you come out on road, first you are an Indian, a good human being," he added. Five schools for each zone were recoginised for having recorded the best overall performances.
