Shri. Chetan Janardan said that ‘there is lack of Dharmashikshan amongst people. People have forgotten morality; therefore, women are being oppressed. The present day parents show no interest in inculcating good values in their children and encourage imitation of western culture. There is no provision to impart education on matters related to Dharma under the secular governance.’
Ranaragini’s Sav. Vinuta Shetty emphasized the need for training of self-defence for all women. Women’s organizations of various political parties also took part in this program. The representatives of these organizations pointed out to the need for imparting training on Hindu culture to people.
