Girls for nation building need of hour: Bijral
Beti Bachao Beti Padhao critical project can catch up with time once girls accept to not meekly tolerate any sort of harassment and speak out for their rights as advised to them by CM Mehbooba Mufti, asserted former IGP, S. S. Bijral. He said need of hour is for girls to come forward for nation building.
State Convener Beti Bachao Beti Padhao S. S. Bijral participating in seminar held at Central Basic Higher Secondary School, a model school declared by the govt., said for nation’s total development women constituting 50 per cent of population have to be awakened for crucial role in fighting poverty, illiteracy and strengthening security by garnering patriotic spirit. He said this can happen once the illogical deep rooted bias against girl child is shunned. Quoting Mahatma Gandhi : “To call the woman a weaker sex is a libel. If by strength is meant the brute force then indeed is woman less brute than man; if by strength is meant moral power then woman is immeasurably man’s superior. Has she not greater intuition; is she not more self sacrificing; has she not got greater power of endurance; has she not got greater courage?”, Bijral stressed that for Bharat to be fully developed and prosperous women capabilities would need to be exploited in full. He called upon the audience, the boys only, to shun the biased and unfounded beliefs prevalent in society against girl child and nation builder and that they should stand by their sisters for their wholesome development for ensuring healthy homes and healthy institutions.
Choudhary Kamal Singh state Committee member highlighted the all round achievements of the girls in society and called upon the boys – the future fathers to weigh well the intrinsic values in their life partner rather than the material wealth that greedy families look to in the form of dowry.
Anju Dogra another state committee member who anchored also the function talked about social injustices suffered by women over centuries and called upon audience to welcome girl child well considering Adolf Hitler saying; “Give me good mothers will give you good nation.” Principal Devinder Singh Manhas, thanked the team for educating budding society about social evils and expected of the students to further spread the message. A banner conveying message of PM Narinder Modi conveying ‘Beti Ka Samman Desh Ka Samman’ was fixed at a prominent place to daily remind students about what they had been made aware of.
