The spokesman said India is a diverse country with people belonging to different religious beliefs and cultures, speaking divergent languages, living together as one entity. “The country is so diverse that one can even find multiplicity in language, culture, food habits and even dressing within the States,” Prof. Mehraj ud Din Mir said.
The spokesman said in connection with the Ek Bharat Shreshta Bharat celebration, the university is lucky to be paired with Tamil Nadu, which is a peace-loving State.

The University is sending students to one of the universities in Tamil Nadu wherein they would showcase the culture and tradition of the State of Jammu and Kashmir. He said that faculty would also interact with their counterparts in the higher educational institutions of Tamil Nadu.
