Who is responsible for the erosion of values in man? He himself is responsible for his devaluation. Today we don't find any trace of human values in human beings. Human values do not come from outside. They are already there in every person. But man is not able to recognize this. He speaks untruth, undertakes wrong activities, looks at forbidden things and entertains wrong thoughts. He has lost his purity. How can we call a person a human being if he lacks human values?
