Leicestershire Police Invited Guruji

Internationally renowned Spiritual Leader and The Peace Ambassadors  of World Book Records  HH Shree Rajrajeshwar Guruji was invited to Leicester for a special meeting with Chief Inspector Kam Mistry of the Leicestershire Police Force, to discuss Faith and the Police.

The meeting was to discuss the superb initiatives that Shree Rajrajeshwar Guruji has already addressed in London, working with the Metropolitan Police aimed at addressing some of the most challenging social issues within our society, such as homelessness, isolation, alcohol and drug addiction, youth gangs, knife crime, domestic abuse and mental health.

Both Shree Rajrajeshwar and Chief Inspector Kam Mistry spoke passionately about how important it is for the Hindu/Indian Faith Community and Police to work together and engage with the community to focus on helping others in different ways to find long term solutions.

His Holiness Shree Rajrajeshwar Guruji (Rajesh Parmar) said he had been working over a number of years in partnership with the Metropolitan Police and Scotland Yard to build links between the Hindu/Indian Faith Community and the Police. He said: “I believe that the Hindu/Indian faith community has an important role to play in bringing about community transformation and cohesion and when the police and faith communities work together to tackle some of the issues the Police are facing, we will see lives and communities being transformed. Policing covers a vast range of issues within society, often it is non-crime related issues that takes up a considerable amount of Police time and resources. Faith Communities can help support the Police in numerous ways by engaging and supporting some of the most vulnerable within our communities, in both reactive and preventative initiatives; thereby reducing crime and demand. Effective communication and joint working between the local forces, faith groups and local projects will help build stronger communities. This, in turn, will enhance partnerships within the community and will also support national policing priorities”.

Guruji continued that “at a time when Police budgets are being cut and services are being significantly reduced, faith communities can step in to bridge that gap in a wide variety of ways. These range from early intervention in the form of mentoring, youth services, to addiction recovery services, and support for victims of domestic abuse and mental health. The potential in faith communities is almost endless.

Chief Inspector Kam Mistry continued by saying that all this has been achieved thanks to strong partnership working with Leicester City Council, the Safer Leicester Partnership, Neighbourhood Watch, Police Volunteers and the great team of Police officers and Police staff who are proud to patrol the streets of Leicester.

 

Also in attendance at the meeting were: Ranjit Sonigra (Police Community Support Officer), Sanjay Jagatia (Chair of the Hindu Think Tank UK), Dipak Joshi (Editor of Gujarati Metro Newspaper), Muna Chauhan (Domestic Abuse specialist), together with Chief Inspector Kam Mistry‘a wife.

 

H.H Shree Rajrajeshwar Guruji will continue to meet with Police Forces across the UK in his mission to build better engagement between the Hindu/Indian Faith Community and Police Forces.
