Beltangady, Dec 2: “It is necessary to start a social movement to put an end to injustice, exploitation, superstition” said minister of law, T B Jayachandra.

He was speaking after inaugurating a literary and all-religions conference held in Dharmasthala Amritavarshini hall on the occasion of Lakshadeepotsava here on Sunday December 1.

Speaking further he said, “Indian constitution allows practicing every religion in the country. However, it is necessary that people do not fight in the name of religion. It should be a movement. It is nothing but the secularist thoughts that refine the society. Youth irrespective of their religion and caste are the ones who take us to the next level. Hence it is important that they respect every religion and maintain harmony among all.”

“The all religions conference enables harmony in between religions. There should be faith but not superstition. The conference should send an appropriate message about various religions through discussions. Such conferences should be held in other places also and bring about a healthy society, he added.

Speaking about the Interfaith Convention he said, “Indian education and the linguistic and religious aspects of India are trusted and respected by the world. Such conventions play an important role in nurturing that trust. It is great that the Kshetra has been organizing such a convention from the past 81years.”

Dharmadikari Dr Veerendra Heggade gave a key note address and said that religion is the light which shows us the path of life. He said that we should never give up religion which is our permanent and daily guide. There are differences in the celebrations, work and devotion among religions but the end aim is welfare of mankind. Religion has the divine power to unite us and protection of religion is protection of society, he said.
