Addressing the gathering Baraguru Ramachandrappa said that the convention is held to bring communal harmony. He congratulated the organizers for organizing a unique programme to promote communal harmony among the people.

He further said that for bringing harmony among the people we need not lose our Principles. Social activists should stress people to follow Principles in life and also practice the same. Principles should not be limited to Maths, when they become Maths there is no growth. We should not give up our principles to bring communal harmony among people. India has unity in diversity and to create harmony among people in the society is a great task.

Today Gandhi was assassinated and on the same day the convention is being held. Rohit Vemula committed suicide, one is assassination and the another suicide both are murder of the Conscience ( Inner Voice).

When Godse was in the court to face charges on Gandhi’s assassination, he explained why he killed Gandhi, “Gandhi was always supporting Muslims and sacrificing a lot for their sake. Instead of calling Gandhi as the father of the nation Godse said to call him as the father of Pakistan. People who believe in Godse made him as their God and said that they will build a temple in his name. He not only said that he is the father of Pakistan but now if anyone talk about food culture Godse’s supporters say that they will send them to Pakistan. They are unable to send anyone to Pakistan but our own prime minister Narendra Modi went to Pakistan and created history.

Rohit Vemula committed suicide but now they are trying to mislead about which caste he belonged. Rohit suicide is the murder of thousands of youth who suffer from caste discrimination. He pointed out that the tongues have become serpents, mouths have become guns, Tolerance is in the mortuary and equality is in the intensive care unit,

The government started swachch Bharat on Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti but swachch Bharat should be started from their bad mouths because if the bad mouths will be clean, the tongues will not become serpents and the mouths not guns. We can then have a clean country.

Our people believe in superstitions, they believe in Bhoothas. They erect some stones in bus stands and start praying. The bus drivers before taking the passengers to their destination pray to the stones for safe driving and then get involved into accidents.

Power should not build ego in any political leader. The political leaders cannot cling to power forever, power will come and go. In the name of globalization, people have started to talk about development which is a joke, he said

Baraguru further said, “There is no relationship between Dharma and spirituality . We should not fight in the name of religion.  Dharma has been misused by some leaders for their own benefit. Earlier Compassion was the root of all religions but now it has changed to fear and fear has become the root of religion. There is no compassion among people. Powerful people dominate the poor in the name of religion. If at all anyone is highly discriminated it is God because people fight in the name of religion. Dharma is not belong to one particular region or religion. There is no need to fight in the name of religion. We need to invite everyone to promote communal harmony. On one side we are talking about development and the another side we talk about Dharma, in development only investment is God and in Dharma stones are God. Gandhiji used Khadi, salt and charaka to fight for justice, he never used God”.
He also said, “Ambdekar had set in the preamble of the Constitution which affirms a life of liberty, equality and fraternity. Swami Vivekananda said that until and unless we are not winning the love of Christians and Muslims we have to go on building churches and mosques. Love is the only way to lead a peaceful life.  Dharma is not in building Churches, Temples or Mosques. We need to transform ourselves as temples. Today we are seeing people who are following Vivekananda and are ready to shed blood in the name of Dharma. We need to take the people where there is no Veda, no Bible and no Quran and achieve it with the unity of Veda, Quran and Bible. Muslims and Hindus should be united for the peaceful existence”.  While concluding Baraguru said that let us all unite and make this world a better place to live in.

Suresh Bhat Bakrebail delivered the presidential address. Teesta Setalvad, Gauri Lankesh, General secretary, Central committee of KSV K L Ashok, P B D’Sa and others were also present.
