Government committed to social justice: CM

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said the State government was committed to ensure social justice irrespective of religion, caste or creed.

Addressing the huge gathering here at the eighth day celebrations of Mahamasthakabhisheka rituals to Lord Bahubali, he said humans should be away from all hatredness among each other. The State government assures self dignity with eradication of illiteracy among the public. Stressing that all religious preachings uphold human dignity and equality, the CM said it is ridiculous to emphasis on separation of society.

The harmonious culture is only possible through tolerance.  The ideals of Lord Bahubali is relevant forever.

Asserting that Dharma is the way of life, the CM said the people who fight in the name of Dharma should realise that people should live Dharma, as the way they live their life. Dharma is totally different from the caste or religion. Dharma stresses on harmony and brotherhood. The nation with the history of tolerance, stands apart from all other nations across the globe.

Stating that Bhagwan Bahubali is the testimony of peace, tolerance, non violence and sacrifice, the CM said people should adopt these ideals as a way of life. He added that achievements are possible through sacrifice and lamented that the anti-social elements are more focussed on inhuman activities which should be discarded by the civilised society. Lamenting that despite several achievements in the field of science and technology, the humans are yet to realise that humanitarian virtues are the basic ideals to any success.  “We know how to fly in the sky, how to swim like fishes in water, but we have failed to know the way of decent life. We do not know how to live decently on earth,” he rued. 

Human walls

Pointing out that the walls between humans is detrimental to the health of the society, the CM said that the greediness has resulted in construction of the huge walls between human beings.

He stressed that there is a need for the humanitarian atmosphere which emphasis on brotherhood and added, ‘It should be we and not I’. “We are all one to the God and he never differentiates among us in the name of religion, caste or creed,” he said and added that India is the only country, which has achieved freedom adopting the way of non-violence.

Later, speaking at the St Lawrence Church annual feast celebrations at Attur in Karkala, the CM said the government had allotted Rs 2.5 crore to the infrastructure development of the church. In fact, the Church stands significant as people irrespective of caste or creed take part in the annual celebrations.
