to spread a message that schools should make martial arts compulsory for all. Time has come when each of each of us should have defend ourselves by ourselves only,” said Sunita Godaye, reported NNIS.
She added that the society needs to change its mindset, “We are moving forward with Anna's five thinking. There should be no discrimination between boys and girls. The society needs to bring change in its mindset.”
One of the participants in the rally, who is learning martial arts, said that every girl should learn self-defense techniques to ensure that she can teach a good lesson to anti-social elements.
“We are learning self defence to tackle those anti-social elements who attack on us. We want to teach them a good lesson that in future they do not dare to misbehave with us,” said Suman, a martial arts student.
Rekha Sharma, a Delhi
University student, said that in the wake of present insecure atmosphere in Delhi for women, learning a martial art is a good idea.
“I am also thinking to learn some martial art in order to defend my self in danger. Police may not be available everywhere and every time,” Said Rekha.
