New Delhi, Dec 1: Stressing that honouring women should start from one's home, RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said government has made the laws but it has to be implemented properly.
'Government has made the laws, it has to be implemented properly. Not everything can be left on administration. Men need to be educated on how to treat women,' Mr Bhagwat said at 'Gita Mahotsav Programme' here.
"The men who engage in abuse of women also have mothers and sisters. Honouring women should start from one's own home," he said, adding that criminals have mothers and sisters, therefore they exist.
'The outlook towards women should be of respect,' he emphasised.
He said Geeta has given all knowledge of spirituality in a condensed form. 'It is a summarised form of all Upanishads which Lord Krishna espoused to Arjun. It has advocated that one should do devotion along with performing duties," he said.
The gang rape and murder of an aspiring 27-year old veterinary doctor brought under sharp focus the safety of women in the country.
The charred body of the victim, a resident of Shadnagar on the suburbs of the state capital, was found in an underpass adjacent to the Bangalore-Hyderabad National Highway-44 and Rajiv Gandhi International Airport early Thursday. (UNI)
