Mysuru, KARNATAKA :
“Born as a human being, one should practice the habit of letting other living beings also live in peace,” said city’s noted Homoeopath Dr. Khader, who has been touring rural areas propagating the message of non-violence for the past 10 years after turning a vegetarian at the age of 15.
He was speaking after being conferred with ‘Sri Mahaveera Ahimsa Award by Sri 108 Munishree Pavanakeerthi Bhattaraka Muni Maharaj at a function organised by Sri Mahaveera Seva Samsthan as part of 2615th Jayanti Mahotsava of 1008 Bhagawan Sri Mahaveera Theerthankara at Sri M.L.Vardhamanaiah Smaraka Bhavan on Chadragupta Road in city last evening.
Regretting that 30 to 40 percent of those manufacturing biscuits and chocolates use fat extracted from animals, he added that consumption of bakery items also lead to sugar-related and respiratory ailments, which need to be curbed at once by using vegetarian products.
Former Mayor and Ekalavya Awardee (for Kho-Kho) N.Prakash was also felicitated on the occasion by the Seva Samsthan.
