The Dadri incident in which Md Akhlaq lost his life had forced President Pranab Mukherjee to comment on the core values of the Indian civilisation. He had said that at any cost we as a Nation would have to be tolerant. The President has also expressed his anguish at the manner in which awards were being returned as a mark of protest. He said that such acts tarnish the country’s image. After the President has spoken out against ‘Award Wapsi’ one can hope that those who are protesting against the rising intolerance will voice their concerns but would think twice before returning their awards since this would show India in a bad light.
