NALANDA, Mar 19 (Agencies): Universities and academic institutions must have free atmosphere devoid of prejudice, violence or any doctrine for unhindered intellectual pursuit, President Pranab Mukherjee said today.

Speaking at the valedictory session of the ‘International Buddhists Conference’ here, Mukherjee said the ancient learning centres in Nalanda, Taxila and Vikramshila attracted great minds in forms of students and teachers from all over the world.

These were not merely places of learning, but were a confluence of four civilizations— Indian, Persian, Greek and Chinese, he said at Rajgir’s International Convention Centre in Nalanda district.

“The essence of these universities was open mind, free discussions. The acharyas and upadhyays encouraged students to pose questions, before a proposition was to be accepted and followed by them.

“If there cannot be free atmosphere in a university, in an academic institution then what type of lessons we can give to our students. Education means development of mind, constant interaction with teachers and fellow students. An atmosphere must be free from prejudice, anger, violence, doctrines. It must be conducive to free flow intellectual persuasions,” Mukherjee said.
