Dr B R Ambedkar outshines all in today’s society, says UoM Registrar Prof C Basavaraju

Today, Dr B R Ambedkar certainly outshines every other leader in terms of public ac­ceptance, opined University of Mysore Registrar Prof C Basavaraju, here on Monday.

He was speaking after in­augurating the 125th birth an­niversary of Dr B R Ambedkar organised by UOM School of Law at its auditorium.

Addressing the students, he said that “Dr Ambedkar was a simplistic symbol: An architect of the Constitution, a great nationalist, father of reservations, a liberal demo­crat, a great parliamentarian, a saviour of Dalits, a Buddhist and above all he is a divine personality of Indian history.”

Further he said that Ambedkar’s vision of equali­ty; liberty and fraternity were influenced by great philan­thropists like Buddha and Basavanna. Buddha was a synonym of knowledge, but now United Nations has de­clared Dr Ambedkar’s birth­day as World Knowledge Day. Thus, Ambedkar stands out as a charismatic personality, he added.

Mysore District Journal­ists’ Association President K Deepak, University of Mysore Shcool of Law Director Dr K B Kempegowda, Department of Studies in Law Chairman Dr T R Maruthi were present.
