“It is because of this amity that India is known worldwide as a country of religious tolerance. All religions and individuals are given equal respect here. Religious tolerance not only means respecting all religions but also the people. Buddhism too started in this nation and because of this, India is the guru and all Buddhists are students,” he said.
