Addressing students at the 9th convocation ceremony of the Charotar University of Science and Technology (CHARUSAT), Kerala Governor Arif Mohammed Khan said that an ideal and perfect nation is the one where the strong do not oppress the weak.

“An ideal state is where the weak has nothing to be afraid of the strong. And dharma is where there is absence of matsyanyay,” he said.

He further hailed the Indian tradition as being one of the oldest one still alive. “You are armed with your knowledge and skill… you must also be aware of your legacy. This civilization is one of the oldest in the world. So, why does our civilization continue to exist? The secret behind it is that the Indian tradition is a reflective one and asks you to remain in constant pursuit of knowledge. It constantly asks you to think and remain in search of elusive realities,” he said.
