This would give an understanding of the dialogue between Hindus, Muslims, Christians, and Sikhs and would benefit in removing prejudices and misunderstandings about each other faith. It would also help to realize common objectives such as the establishment of justice and world peace, the protection of families from disintegration, the protection of human rights and the promotion of moral values.
