RSS Sarsanghachalak Mohan Bhagwat advises women Strengthen families, lead the society
NAGPUR: Underlining the important place, participation and role of women in family system, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat categorically stated that only women can strengthen the family roots.
Interacting with a group of women representatives of various social organisations and NGOs at Reshambagh recently, he called upon them to play a more vital role in this direction. He expected them to take the initiative and play a decisive role in the decision making process in the family as the family draws its strength with the active participation of its women members, he added.
Shri Bhagwat said the RSS wanted women to be self-reliant and assume the leadership of the society. There was an express need to inculcate good moral values amongst the family members. For this, it was imperative for the women to imbibe those values and actively transmit them to their children. He emphasised that in India the honour of women was held very high since the hoary past. Even today we relate rivers, land, etc with womanhood. These are our life values. Today, we witness a devaluation of such high moral values, which calls for proper awakening and education of the menfolk.
He said the statute has granted 33 per cent reservation to women. In view of this, they need to prove their decision-making capability instead of depending on the menfolk for guidance or decision.
