Pope ordered him to reverse this statement and agree with what was written in the Bible. Jinnah, who created Pakistan used religion as a tool. So, here if every citizen become active against it and works with unity than collectively they can go against politicians and priests.
Politics is about the creation and distribution of power and not to misuse it. Being a member of society everyone should follow rules. A role of family, community and schools is to distribute social and moral values. If each family, community and schools become serious about their roles than they can educate young generation in real sense and create a social capital and better citizen.

Building up trust and credibility among members of society Corruption and bureaucracy Behavioural pattern hurting society: Ego, Jealousy, Indifference, Fatalistic Attitude and atonement History proves that losing moral bonds is often the first stage of disintegration of civil society.
The craving for materialism and status, the greed for money and power, combined with low moral values are breeding grounds for corruption. Various facts of scams and scandals in present country were discussed with incidences taken from news paper and reviews. Indian tradition teaches people how to live in a society. Sikhism had given 3 pillars as dignity of labour, the fruit of honest and share with our fellowmen. Because if second chance is given to Karna, he surely attempt to kill Arjuna.
The same thing can be applicable to all that evil people and making them disarmed and kill rather than giving them second chance to harm other people. This could be a better option to treat criminals. Humanity and Nation should be considered above all religion. Through this book author wants to say that there is a way out of this corruption and injustice and make society free from this but for they every common man has to stand up and fight for principles so that all Indians can be led to dignity and prosperity.
This book is thought provoking for each reader and encouraging for taking action against corruption. Politicians can use their power, but if every responsible citizen unite and use their right to vote and choose appropriate leader than they can take out power from politician. Now, without politicians are helpless. In real sense if every Indian wanted to follow the pledge of country, they should read this book and take an action against corrupt people.
This book will provide guidelines and directions for such people. Being a parent, teacher or elder person in society one can inculcate moral values in children so that in future they will develop an outlook regarding dreadful effects of corruption and other social issues.
In this way they can contribute to growth and development of country. Share this:.
