Jaivansh Jaimini started this petition to Narendra Modi (Prime Minister) and

Due to a surge in rape cases and the particular incident concerning Dr. Priyanka Reddy, it is time that instead of organizing social media campaigns and candle marches, we take a concrete action that has a long term impact on society in terms of women empowerment and safety.

Since most of the parents have failed to inculcate respect and empathy towards women in boys and men, the nation calls for an environment of fear towards committing such crimes. Since legal proceedings will always take place as they're supposed to, on basis of facts and evidence, the Judiciary can make the criminal procedures only so much swifter. Although, it would be a million times better if the court didn't need to handle a rape case again in the future. This can be a very real possibility, but only if we follow through on the following proposal.

This petition proposes for mandatory classes on self defense and martial arts for school girls and female college students so that they can learn to protect themselves better, and thus, be able to not only defend themselves from sexual assailants, but physically overpower them if need be, so that the criminal does not escape justice, from both the court and the woman whose dignity he/they tried to demolish.

This petition calls upon the president, the government of India and the ministers concerned to pass a bill in the parliament that mandates at least 3 self defense classes in a week. The petitioner, as a student himself, would also like to call upon the CBSE to collaborate with AIMMAA to headhunt martial arts coaches for the task. Last but not the least, this petition also calls upon the Supreme Court of India to pass an executive order/judgment whilst upholding the Constitution and the right to social justice, life and equality it entails to every citizen and woman of this great nation.

No more campaigns. No more call for justice. Let's end the menace of rape altogether. Let's truly empower our daughters and sisters. If men aren't up to the task of being decent, it's time that women take the matters into their own hands.

BETI PADHAO, BETI BACHAO, BETI SABAL AUR SASHAKT BANAO
