Shri Ram Sena's Jammu and Kashmir wing has criticised the state government of Jammu and Kashmir for ignoring the rights of fair sex comprising the Hindu community and demanded Holiday on Karva Chauth festival.
Shri Ram Sena's state president Rajiv Mahajan said that the state government is keeping its eyes shut to look after the plight of the Hindu community women who observe fast of Karva Chauth even without taking water for the complete day till the moon appears in late in the evening. The women working in government departments and other organizations are bound to perform their official duties under severe conditions having hardest fast and state government has no courtesy towards this fair sex. This is a total injustice with this fair and pious community, Mahajan added. Mahajan demanded the government to declare a 'Gazetted Holiday' or 'Special Holiday for Women' on Karva Chauth. Mahajan appealed all to social organisations working for the rights of women to raise their voice to provide justice to dominant section of society (Karva Chauth fast holders).
