"Nizam’s well acclaimed farman issued in 1933:
I do not wish that I should wound the feelings of any community or religion through short-sightedness or that I should so immerse myself in my religion that it might be called “Bigotry”. In short, my policy and that of my predecessors has been not only to look upon all religions of the world equally without discrimination or difference…But also to earn a good name by behaving in harmony with all like milk and sugar." Nawab Mir Osman Ali Khan , the Nizam of Hyderabad in 1933.
