Participants of the reception showed their concerns about the current incidence of intolerance in the country. They urged to institutionalize tolerance and patience skills among youth and in general, across the country’s populace. In this regard, it was suggested that academic leaders, institutional heads, Higher Education Commission, governmental organisations and civil society should get together for brainstorming of devising strategies of enthusing youth with civic education, tolerance skills and character building aimed at producing responsible and civilised citizens. This step will be greatly helpful in creating an environment of peace, co-existence and harmony across the country. The participants also paid tribute to the martyrs of Army Public School Peshawar.
