Mangaluru, Nov 17, 2017: Expressing concern over eroding moral values in society, the former Karnataka Lokayukta N. Santosh Hegde said recently that it has paved the way of corrupt practices in administration.
He was addressing a gathering after inaugurating the fifth annual conference of the International Association for Education in Ethics on the theme ‘curricular innovation in ethics education’ at the Centre For Ethics, Yenepoya University here.
Mr. Hegde said that moral values are on the decline in the legislature, executive and judiciary sectors. “It is not a healthy trend. Ignoring moral education is costing the society a lot.”
He said that earlier the society was not respecting those imprisoned and punished for criminal activities.
“But now such persons are honoured and appointed for higher positions. It is a clear indication of declining moral values. On the other side, humanity is also declining in the society,” Mr. Hegde said.
Meanwhile, The Yenepoya School, Mangaluru, celebrated its Founder’s Day at Yenepoya University in the memory of its founder mentor, late Yenepoya Moideen Kunhi.
Farhaad Yenepoya, Managing Director, The Yenepoya School and Pre-University College presided over it.
The Yenepoya Teacher Award was presented to Yakub S., of Government High School, Nada, Beltangady and Yamuna K., of Government Higher Primary School, Neerkere, Moodbidri.
