"The basic objective of the organisation (Brahma Kumaris) is to ensure peace, harmony, cordiality between man to man, woman to woman, between man and woman as brothers and sisters.

"On the whole, this is the ultimate objective of our civilisation, of our progress, of our advancement," he said.

Mukherjee said, "No doubt we want economic growth, technological development, scientific pursuit of knowledge but at the end everything comes to a point that we want to have happiness."
