District Development Commissioner Budgam, Dr Syed Sehrish Asgar visited the Spring Buds Educational institute, Ompora and presided over the Seminar titled ‘Drug De-addiction cum anti-Corruption’ programme.
At the outset, the DDC interacted with various students about both topics.
Speaking on the occasion, the DDC pointed about the causes of the drug abuse like peer pressure, psychological causes etc. While quoting the Holy Quran, the DDC reiterated that it is prohibited in Islam and other religions as well to consume drugs and indulge in smoking and substance abuse.
While speaking on the topic ‘corruption’ the DDC highlighted the responsibility of family and educational institutions to inculcate values of honesty and integrity so that menace of corruption can be curbed.
She also exhorted the students to be shining examples of the Notion “Means justify the End, not in the notion of End justifies the Means” and said that corruption being a two-way process, both the stakeholders are made aware of the menace and educational institutions have a huge responsibility in eradicating this menace.
