New Delhi: Khudai Khidmatgar, an NGO with the values of Peace and Harmony working across the country, has now taken a new initiative of building a better leadership among youths, based on better human values. To achieve its objectives a platform for the society has now been created, especially to learn and to present better values in the society, after a long understanding and wider observation. The ideal home “SABKA GHAR” (House For All) was inaugurated by prominent civil rights activist Justice (Retd.) Rajendra Sachar at Jamia Nagar, Okhla, on 18th June 2017, and dedicated to all those killed in the name of Religion, Caste, Gender, Race and Boundaries.
Justice (Retd.) Rajendra Sachar, who unveiled the plaque of the SABKA GHAR, while delivering the inaugural speech, said, “The reactionary forces have been making all attempts to hide the basic issue of equitable distribution of the societal produce and try to propagate not only self-centered and isolationist attitude but also negativity, hatred and violence, and that too in the name of ‘nation. They want people not to have empathy and respect and value for the human life. The divisive forces are furthering societal violence – overtly through mob violence as well as covertly through their policies.”
He called upon the audience to counter the destructive forces only through humane ideology and practice that tries to take due cognizance of the interaction and evolution of all major societal processes – because in the ultimate all these are manifestations of the unjust capitalist social order that is increasingly adopting authoritarian or fascist practices as it is unable to manage societal contradictions without resorting to these tactics.
“For the pro-people forces there is no option but to organize the people from all walks of life, develop the culture of resistance, and not only resist the advancement of capitalist-fascist forces but reverse the direction of societal movement towards a humane, equitable and just society, where everyone – without any distinction of caste, class, region, religion, gender or any other criterion – gets the opportunity to realize ones potential,” said Justice Sachchar.
Faisal Khan, a key functionary spearheading Khudai Khidmatgar, in his speech, lamented, “The powerful forces that control capital – at the national and international both levels – need to keep the people divided so that their societal dominance and control over the resources remain unchallenged and their profits are maximized. To this end, these forces use all sorts of tactics that help divide the people – be it in the name of religion, region, caste, language, gender, profession or whatever.”

K Tripathy, Satya Paul, Ashok Saran, Ramesh Chandra Sharma, President of Gandhi Peace Foundation Kumar Prashant, Chandrabhal Tripathy, Columnist Humra Qureshi, Prof. Atiya Kidwai, Prof. Raghav Sharma, and Divya Vishwakarma also participated in this event.
