War, terrorism, violence humanly unforgivable crimes: VP Dhankhar

New Delhi: Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar Friday said that Lord Mahavir’s message of non-violence, diversity, coexistence and peace is most needed today.

“War, terrorism and violence are humanly unforgivable crimes. No religion considers inhuman acts like terrorism and violence as forgivable. In the complex circumstances that the country and the world are currently facing, the teachings of Lord Mahavir are most effective for creating a peaceful society,” Dhankar said.

Dhankhar expressed the above remarks in the presence of Devendra Brahmachariji, founder of Jan Arogyam Foundation, in his office in Parliament House.

On this occasion, Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Ramdas Athawale, famous journalist, writer and social worker Lalit Garg, representative of Jain community of Kolkata Manoj Jain Ishika and Arsh Kaushik of Haridwar were present.

While discussing the 2550th Nirvana Mahotsav of Lord Mahavir, Dhankhar said that by taking inspiration from the life and philosophy of Mahavir, we can give a new direction to the society.

Praising the efforts of non-violence and egalitarian development of Devendra Brahmachari, he said that only a saint like Devendra Brahmachariji can free the society from violence and fear by providing true guidance.

Founder of Jan Arogyam Foundation, Devendra Brahmachari said that in the complex environment of communal violence, bitterness and hatred, efforts are being made to establish peace and tranquility in the country and the world through the life philosophy of Mahavir. There is a need to spread Mahavir and his philosophy of life in the world today. Through this, we can get relief from problems like war, Naxalism and terrorism.

Devendra Brahmachari, while inviting Dhankhar for the grand event of Maha-Mahavirotsav  to be organized in Mumbai in February 2024 during the 2550th Nirvana year of Lord Mahavir, said that today Mahavir is expected to be established among the common people and not as a Jain. .

On this occasion, Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment Ramdas Athawale said that the objective of Maha-Mahavirotsav is to create communal harmony and mutual brotherhood in the society. This is also a special undertaking of the practice of non-violence.

He expressed the need to organize the 2550th Nirvana Mahotsav of Lord Mahavir at the national level. Journalist, writer and social worker Lalit Garg greeted Dhankhar by covering him with a shawl and presented a bouquet to Manoj Jain.
