“Need for intra-faith harmony, says ex-Prez”
is the headline in The Pioneer, the second oldest English language newspaper in India.
Remembering Swami Vivekananda’s historic appearance at the Chicago World Parliament of Religions, held in 1893, many notable personalities, including former President of India Pranab Mukherjee organised a interfaith meet at Vivekananda Mission on Wednesday to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the historic speech.
Celebrating the anniversary, Mukherjee said,
“There is perhaps a need for intrafaith harmony
even more than the interfaith harmony.”
Vivekananda’s historic speech has been remembered and celebrated by many across the country every year.
