He advised the students to have the right kind of food in right quantity, avoid harmful substances and engage in physical activities and particularly yoga. “I am born a Hindu and have faith in Hinduism. But I respect all religions. I was invited to Lahore in Pakistan once for a Sufi conference. I was the only vegetarian and Hindu there amidst a few who were fanatics,” he said.
Vice-Chairman of BVB K.B. Ganapathy calling Dr. Kaarthikeyan more a saint than a Police Officer said that there were not many officers of the calibre of Dr. Kaarthikeyan today and that is the reason why IPS Officers’ (Karnataka) Association President ADGP Rajvir Pratap Sharma wrote a letter to Chief Secretary Ratna Prabha conveying his displeasure at the political interference in Police duties.
“It is very sad that today many do not fear the Police. It is only the good people who fear the Police and respect the law. When there is no fear of the law the lumpen elements take over and the Police are in a dilemma whether to obey the Constitution of the country and the law of the land or the will of the political masters in power. If this situation continues then we are headed for catastrophe,” he said.
The Police have a perfect role model in the Dr. Kaarthikeyan and if the society is to survive without any disturbance then such kind of officers are necessary and then India truly can look forward to Achhe Din, said Ganapathy.
