The vision of Malaviya ji was so perfect and dynamic that every solution regarding the problems of higher education is there. The motive of Malaviyaji was to make higher education answerable in any condition, period or time. The concept of globlisation from the vision of Madan Mohan Malaviya could be seen in the following version "And the creator and benefactor of the world , the universal soul moving in all, brought together his all children of the east and the west, and induced their mind to that unanimity which meanest good and right understanding directed them to raise this home of universal learning in the capital town of the lord of universe". (printed in copper plate, 1916, BHU) again Malaviya pray was "May Saraswati, inearned in the shurti-heart of wisdom, ever bloom and shine with worship from her humane children, may they ever assiduously imbibe the vital milk of knowledge flowing from her sweet breast of science and philosophy :may all hearts turns to act as good alone: may all hearts be filled with love of supreme." (Printed in copper plate 1916 BHU) so this was the globalized vision and religious thought of Malaviyaji to enhance higher education in global scenario. At that time somebody propose this university as a sectarian University. They thought that the existing university had been exercising a difference between Hindu and Muslim. The reply of this objection Malaviya said in his speech in the imperial legislative council "The University will be a denominational institution but not a sectarian one.
