Law is the tool to transform the society: Dr C Basavaraju

Mysuru, October 6:- “Law is the tool to transform the society. Law is essential to maintain peace and harmony in the society,” said the Dean of the Department of Law of the University of Mysore Dr C Basavaraju.

He was speaking after inaugurating a Debate Competition organised by Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishat (ABVP) on Saturday.

“We are not respecting the law. We have not taken it seriously. One who does not know the law will take it lightly. Gautham Buddha had told in 6th century BC that awareness is life. Basavanna, Kuvempu, Dr B R Ambedkar, and others have left their ideologies for us. But we are not following them properly,” he added.

“We are living with hundreds of problems. We can see infighting among us. Our culture is spoiling. Human mindset and behaviour is the major reason for this. Unless it improves, we cannot develop the society,” he added.

“If you want to have a healthy society, there should be no criminal activities. We need a tool to control criminal activities in the society. Lack of culture is increasing crime,” he opined.

Assistant lecturer of Vidyavardhaka Law college T M Prashanth, Sriram of ABVP and Gowtham were present. (MR/HN).
