President Ram Nath Kovind on Thursday called for a "civic-minded" society where one can disagree with views even which had a historical context without mocking the other person's dignity, comments that come in the backdrop of escalating row and violence over Bollywood film Padmaavat.

In his first Republic Day-eve address to the nation, the President also said that institutions should be "disciplined and morally upright", adding they are always "more important" than the individuals in office.
