President Draupadi Murmu said on Sunday that the media is expected to be fully sensitive to the dignity and safety of women in their advertisements, news and programmes. In a video message tagged ‘All Women Bike Rally’, the President said that under the Constitution, it is the duty of every citizen of India to desist from practices that are against the dignity of women.
Murmu said that in order to fulfill this basic duty, it is necessary that the thinking of every citizen should be respectful towards women. The basis of respectful behavior towards women can only be laid in the family. Mothers and sisters should instill in their sons and brothers the values of respecting women, the president said. He also asked the teachers to strengthen the culture of respect and sensitivity towards women among the students.
He also said that the media is expected to be sensitive to the dignity and safety of women in their advertisements, news and programmes, according to a statement issued by the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Murmu said that nature has given women the ability to become mothers and one who has the ability to mother, leadership is naturally present in him. He said that despite all limitations and challenges, women have set new records of success on the strength of their indomitable courage and skills.
