RSS youths can save the present and the future of the motherland:Nobel laureate SatyarthiIndia
Nagpur: Noble laureate Kailash Satyarthi has suggested that RSS shakhas, situated in almost all villages of the country, can serve as a firewall to protect children, especially girls. Speaking as the chief guest at RSS’s annual Vijayadashmi celebrations at its headquarters in Nagpur, Satyarthi requested the youth from the RSS to take charge and save the present and the future of the motherland.
The 64-year-old child rights activist won the Nobel peace prize in 2014 for his Gandhian way of struggle against the exploitation of children for financial gain, PTI reported. Satyarthi said India may be a land of a hundred problems, but it is also the mother of over a billion solutions.
“In order to achieve the goal of building a great and child-friendly nation, participation and leadership of conscientious youth is necessary,” he said.
Satyarthi expressed concern over the rise in the number of crimes against women and added that many girls stopped attending school fearing harassment and eve-teasing and we, out of fear remain quiet in spite of seeing everything in front of our eyes.
The Nobel peace prize winner also said that there should be different parameters to measure the development of the nation apart from the GDP.
Satyarthi said that even today our daughters are still sold and brought at a price much less than what cattle commands.
Blaming the rise in the number of rape cases in the country and the world on porn film industry the Nobel laureate appealed the society to come forward on this issue.
