India Needs Unity Now; Amartya Sen

Kolkata: Nobel laureate Amartya Sen aired his concerns over the existing political and social situation in India and emphasised that India needs unity now, more than tolerance.

“Yes, I would say there is reason to be afraid now. The current situation in the country has become a cause of fear for me now,” Dr Sen was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

“Tolerance has been a part of both Indian culture and Indian education, but more than tolerance, India needs unity in the current situation,” Sen said during the inauguration of the Amartya Sen Research Centre in Salt Lake.

Sen was one of the panelists on the ‘Back to School’ debate along with Anita Rampal, K Srinath Reddy, AK Shiva Kumar and Jean Drèze.
“Even though the environment around us might try to change the history and remove Muslim influence, we all know that truth can’t be tampered with,” the Harvard university professor said.

“If anyone asks me today, are you scared of anything? I would say yes. There are enough reasons to be afraid. Because I want the country to be united. It is not a matter of tolerance. I want the country to remain united as before. The people need to understand this more,” the renowned economist was quoted as saying by TIE.
