He was speaking at the inaugural function of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations of Mount Carmel College in Bengaluru.

Stressing on religious intolerance, he stated that people should take pride and practice one's religion. But that doesn't mean one has the right to "denigrate others' religious beliefs".

The VP also stressed the importance of women's education. He said barriers hindering the emancipation of women should be removed because there are several areas in which women are yet to realize their full potential. He noted that India's civilizational principles encourage equal participation of women in various fields.

Calling for women empowerment, he said women always prove themselves in every discipline when given the opportunity, reported ANI.
