"Returning an award would not solve any problem. We should learn to address the issue (of intolerance) rather than getting it upon ourselves. It is not a personal issue, it is the issue of entire nation," she said in a press meet yesterday.

The 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' star said she was inspired by the firm stand taken by youths on issues facing the country.

Kareena was in Raipur to take part in a series of programmes based on children organised by UNICEF School Education and Women and Child Development Departments of Chhattisgarh Government. The popular star is UNICEF India's 'celebrity advocate' for education.

Earlier, addressing a programme held to mark the culmination of Child Right Convention Week, Kareena stressed on improving the standard of education and simultaneously increasing enrollment of students in schools.

Quality education and advanced learning techniques in a school can collectively ensure progress of a child to attain a better future, she added.

On the occasion, Chief Minister Raman Singh launched a mobile mobile-cum web-based application `CG Edutrack' jointly developed by UNICEF and School Education Department.
