Literature should have the power to establish tolerance: Prof. Abhay Jain

Lucknow, 17 February (HS). Our literature should have so much strength that despite being anti-cult, tolerance can be established. In a country like India, Jain tradition, Vedic tradition and Buddhist tradition, all three work together. Due to this specialty our country is shining at the global level. These things were said by Prof. Vice President of Uttar Pradesh Jain Vidya Research Institute. Abhay Kumar Jain said. He was addressing a seminar organized under the joint aegis of Uttar Pradesh Jain Vidya Shodh Sansthan, Lucknow and Bharatiya Hindi Parishad, Prayagraj at Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University on Saturday.

Addressing the seminar, Joint General Secretary of All India Sahitya Parishad, Dr. Pawanputra Badal said that the entire knowledge tradition of India reaches the future generations only through discussion. Also, when we save our traditions, it is like a heritage for the coming generations.

Prof. Phool Chandra Premi, retired from Dr. Sampoornanand Sanskrit University, while expressing his views, said that this country was named Bharat after the name of Bharat Chakravarti, son of Jain Tirthankar Rishabhdev. Also, when there used to be monarchy in the entire nation, there was democracy only in Vaishali. This contribution of Jain society can never be forgotten.

Chairman of Hindi Sahitya Sammelan Prayagraj, Prof. Surya Prakash Dixit said during the discussion that when we were entering the modern era, our hero Mahatma Gandhi was also influenced by Jain philosophy. Apart from this, solipsism also originates from Jain philosophy, under which we enter into solipsism through Anekantvad.

Chairman of Bharatiya Hindi Parishad Prayagraj, Prof. Pawan Aggarwal said that due to language rebellion, Hindi language literature has remained half-complete today. Today there is a need to take steps towards the redevelopment of the language by attracting the attention of students and researchers.

The program started with the lighting of the lamp by the guests and offering floral tributes to the statue of Babasaheb. After this, the organizing committee expressed its gratitude to the guests by presenting them with a bouquet and memento. The work of conducting the stage was done by Prof. Yogendra Pratap Singh. Head of BBAU Hindi Department, Prof. Ram Pal Gangwar and Prof. Yogendra Pratap Singh from Allahabad University were present.
