A day-long seminar was held at the University of Kashmir on Wednesday to mark the “International Anti-Corruption Day”.

The seminar was organized by the National Anti-Corruption Council in collaboration with the University’s Department of Law.

In his address, Head & Dean of the Faculty of Law, Prof Mohammad Ayoub, traced the origin of anti-corruption legislation in India. “There is a separate anti-corruption legislation in place in the country to effectively deal with the cases of corruption. Besides, we have special anti-corruption courts today for the purpose. But still a lot more needs to be done to completely weed out corruption.”

“The society has to collectively get together and fight the menace of corruption in all its manifestations and forms, wherever it exists. Only then our society and our public institutions would be free from this evil,” he said.

Srinagar-based Patron of the National Anti-Corruption Council, Abdul Jabbar, said: “Both, giving and accepting bribe is a criminal offence and those who indulge in this practice have to face punishment as per law.”

State President of the National Anti-Corruption Council, Mohammad Ashraf, called for “voluntary effort” from young students of law in making the society corruption-free.

Young students from Salfia Islamic Institute Parray Pora, Srinagar also presented their views on the occasion.
