Thus Spake Vivekananda At The Parliaments of The World’s Religions, Chicago, 11 September 1893

Response To Welcome - Inaugural Address

Sisters and Brothers of America, It fills my heart with joy unspeakable to rise in response to the warm and cordial welcome which you have given us. I thank you in the name of the most ancient order of monks in the world; I thank you in the name of the mother of religions; and I thank you in the name of the millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects.  

My thanks, also to some of the speakers on this platform who, referring to the delegates from the Orient, have told you that these men from far-off nations may well claim the honour of bearing to different lands the idea of toleration. I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. We believe not only in universal toleration, but we accept all religions as true.

There may have been up to 168,000 migrants who have fled the country since 2012 according to the UN, out of which an estimated 40,000 persons are estimated to have found their way to India. The others are expected to have found refuge in Bangladesh, parts of S-E Asia and Europe.
