Questions refer to the passage below.
"Ah, Sisters and Brothers, let this Conference be a great success! In spite of diversity that exists among its participants-let this Conference be a great success!
Yes, there is diversity among us. Who denies it? Small and great nations are represented here, with people professing almost every religion under the sun . . . Almost every political faith we encounter here-Democracy, Monarchism, Theocracy, with innumerable variants. And practically every economic doctrine has its representative in this hall . . . Socialism, Capitalism, Communism, in all their manifold variations and combinations.
But what harm is in diversity, when there is unity in desire? This Conference is not to oppose each other, it is a conference of brotherhood. It is not an Islam Conference, nor a Christian Conference, nor a Buddhist Conference. It is not a meeting of Malayans, nor one of Arabs, nor one of Indo-Aryan stock. It is not an exclusive club either, not a bloc which seeks to oppose any other bloc. Rather it is a body of enlightened, tolerant opinion which seeks to impress on the world that all men and all countries have their place under the sun-to impress on the world that it is possible to live together, meet together, speak to each other, without losing one's individual identity; and yet to contribute to the general understanding of matters of common concern, and to develop a true consciousness of the interdependence of men and nations for their well-being and survival on earth.
I know that in Asia and Africa there is greater diversity of religions, faiths, and beliefs, than in the other continents of the world. But that is only natural! Asia and Africa are the classic birthplaces of faiths and ideas, which have spread all over the world. Therefore, it behooves us to take particular care to ensure that the principle which is usually called the "Live and let live" principle-mark, I do not say the principle of "Laissez faire, laissez passer"* of Liberalism which is obsolete-is first of all applied by us most completely within our own Asian and African frontiers. Then only can it be fully extended to our relations with our neighbouring countries, and to others more distant."
