Students in Ferozepur remember activist Dr. Narendera Dabholkar
The students of Dev Samaj College for Women in Ferozepur remembered Dr. Narendera Dabholkar, founding president of Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (MANS), Pune, an organization set up to eradicate superstition in 1989. The students of the College also pledged to continue and question the struggle against superstitions and conservative thoughts in the society.
Expressing their views on the issue of education and society, the students said, Dr. Dhabholkar was MBBS doctor by profession and he epitomized scientific temper among the students.

They further added, that now-a-days, people despite being educated, they are not only ruining their health and money by believing in conservative thoughts, superstitions and medicines by physicians who lack proper knowledge.

The students have been taught about the right path - only a proper doctor can give treatment and not the half-baked physician. Success is obtained through hard work and education. 

During the course of discussions, Dr. Ambuj Sharma, incharge Philosophy Deptt talked about getting justice to Dr. Dabholkar, a physician, noted rationalist, editor of a monthly magazine and an activist who relentlessly campaigned for an anti-superstition Act in Maharashtra- and said, Dr. Dabholkar was murdered on August 20 by unknown people last year and CBI is investigating into the case.

Dev Samaj College for Women is a border town educational institution committed to play an important role in the field of education of women as well.
