Chief Guest Smt. Shamina Shafiq she shared her feelings, opinions and suggestions for the problems relating to women. She said that “Problem is a word synonym to the Women.”That means Women have to face number of problems in their life. And she missed the “Problem creators”i.e. Men. Men should understand the problems of Women. They should have change their mind set and attitudes towards women. From the very beginning Women have to face the problems.
She said that women are ignorant about their Rights. They are not aware about their legal rights. They should know all their rights. Basically they don’t know their rights so cannot execute it. And off course no knowledge of the remedies even after the violations of the Rights. She said that we should not discuss the problems but the solutions for it and you should claim for it.
She also suggested the solutions such as Emotional Empowerment we should make women emotionally very strong. Educational Empowerment, Women should be educated. There is a difference between Education and literacy. Educated means every woman should know their Rights.
Machinery is there for the implementation of the Laws, but there are flaws in the machinery. She said that number of crimes are not reported, Police are not filing the F.I.R. because they have to show the less number of crimes in the society. For that reason women should be very strong and should know all the rights.
Guest of Honour Hon’ble Abdur Rehman (I.P.S) Sir explained all the offences related to the women with the help of Indian Penal Code, 1860. He stated all the provisions which are available for the women. He also mentioned the rate of crimes against women, day by day it is increasing.. They should feel secured in the society.
Hon’ble Dr. Adish Aggarwala President he explained the number of problems of women, such as Rape, Dowry……Judiciary is providing Justice to the common people and it has been proved in Delhi Gang Rape case. Judiciary has given Death Penalty to all the accused in that matter.
