It's the need of the hour, due to the number of rapes happening in the country its time self defense in schools, colleges and other institutions become compulsory across the country. This should have been done much sooner, we are a little too late but we have to start somewhere. It’s time the leaders act and act fast, I can only start this petition, I am only the voice which needs this county's support. It’s time we work together on this, its time. As a nation, we all should make this happen. I have been a teacher for a while now and I have imparted my knowledge to children irrespective of race, colour and religion. Its time our girls learn some form of martial arts or a self defense technique so that they can protect themselves and not panic in the face of danger . I humbly request you all to come forward in this initiative and press the Government of India to make this valuable change in our education system.
