We don’t deserve a holiday on Gandhi Jayanti until a woman can walk freely at midnight on the roads.

Crimes against women are on the rise by each passing year.

National Crime Records Bureau’s recent report Crime in India 2019 states as follows:

“A total of 4,05,861 cases of crime against women were registered during 2019, showing an increase of 7.3% over 2018 (3,78,236 cases).

Majority of cases under crime against women under IPC were registered under ‘Cruelty by husband or his Relatives’ (30.9%) followed by ‘Assault on Women with Intent to Outrage her Modesty’ (21.8%), ‘Kidnapping & Abduction of Women’ (17.9%) and ‘Rape’ (7.9%). The crime rate registered per lakh women population is 62.4in 2019 in comparison with 58.8 in 2018.”

There is no point in taking a holiday when we are not much concerned over his teachings, particularly:

“The day a woman can walk freely at midnight on the roads, that day we can say that India achieved independence.”
