In his Holi greetings to the nation, Chief Minister Narendra Modi wants the nation to uphold honour and dignity of women.
In his message to the Holi revellers, Modi stressed the need to uphold the honour and dignity of women that will enable them to keep their heads held high in the world.
Modi wished that lives of the people will be full of colour, sportsmanship and enthusiasm during Holi celebrations.
He also said that Holi is an occasion to exterminate all forms of social evils from society.
Modi said, "In every faith and culture of society there is a festival that celebrates colour. Holi is the festival of colours, a festival to live life to the fullest and to get immersed in colour, free from other burdens."
"There is no literary work where Holi and colours are not mentioned. Holi is linked to our life. There is no corner of the nation where Holi is not celebrated," Modi added.
Although recently, the anti-rape bill has been passed by the Rajya Sabha, people are still questioning as whether laws can only curb crimes against women. Many activists say that unless and until mindset of people don't change, law won't be of much help.
