'Eradicate rising superstitions in society'

MP R Dhruvanarayan lauded the Prajapitha Brahmakumari Ishwariya Vishwavidyalya for serving the society, irrespective of caste or creed.

Speaking at a programme organised as part of platinum jubilee celebrations held at J H Patel Auditorium in the city on Sunday, he said it was necessary for everyone in the society to live in peace.

“The volunteers of Brahmakumari Vishwavidyalaya are sacrificing their personal lives for the welfare of the society, creating awareness and instilling peace,” he said.

Twenty five per cent of the Indian economy is controlled by a handful of people in the country. So, the number of people living below poverty line is increasing, he lamented.

He commented on the rise in superstitions and suggested to work towards eradicating such beliefs.

Lakshmiji said there was no disparity among castes or communities and the vidyalaya was working for harmony in the society.

The main objective is to promote peace, non-violence, honesty and compassion among people, she said.

Earlier, a rally was taken out from Prakash Bhavan to the deputy commissioner’s office. Vatal mutt seer Sri Siddalinga Shivacharaya, Prabhuram, Ranganath and others participated.
