Mr Patil said: “Only few individuals can be intolerant; however, history is a great witness that since ages India has greatly adapted diverse religions, cultures, languages, castes, creeds and more. All of these are common to all in India. If we all well understand our own religion individually, we would not be intolerant to go against anybody. Instead of India as a whole, only ignorant persons are responsible for intolerance.” Similarly Smt Dikshit said: “Natural ethos of India has imbibed in whatever form things happened in this country. No doubt, we have fights and differences among ourselves; but, there is no intolerance. If it is there, it is being ignited for certain personal, political or other reasons.”
