Following which, a talk on the theme was given by Hon'ble Chairman Abdul Azeez, Chairman, Karnataka State Minorities Commision.

These religious values are directly aligned with our human rights.
Thereafter, DJJS representative Sadhvi Nishanka Bharti was called upon to further enlighten the audience. She shed light on various topics like Human Rights in Indian Context, Root cause of Human right violations and Concept of Brahmgyan. She highlighted how human rights protection demands transformation of human mindset to adopt inclusivity and equality which can be done through the superior faculty of soul, through the divine knowledge of Brahm Gyan. Accompanied by videos displaying initiatives by Anatarkranti, she explained how the concept of bramhgyan is being applied at Antarkranti to successfully reform prisoners into socially responsible and independent citizens. This thought-provoking session touched the intellectual cum rational chords of the attendees and motivated them towards Brahm Gyan- the eternal science of Self-Realisation.
