On the second day of his maiden India visit on Nov 7, US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama held a meeting with selected students at St Xaviers College in Mumbai. During his speech, Obama said that India has assumed a greater role on the world stage. Islam is a great religion but there is a need to isolate those who have distorted its vision, US President Barack Obama told a huge gathering of college students here Sunday. "We recognise this great religion...This great religion, in the hands of a few extremeists, has been distorted....One of the challenges we face is how we isolate those who have distorted its vision," he said at the St Xaviers College. Obama also added that India has the power to rise above poverty and terror. India and US share same values and interest. So India-US relation is very important. During his interaction with the students, Obama responded to a query that extremists have deserted the values of Islam. He insisted to treat all religions with dignity and respect.
