“Yeh ghatnaye keval sanskaar se ruk sakti hain, shashan aur talwar se rukne wala nahin hain. Sabhi mata-pita ka dharm hai ki woh apni jawan aur yuvti beti ko ek sanskari vaatavaran mein shaalin vyavhaar karne ka tareeka sikhana chahiye. (Such incidents can solely be stopped by good values, and never by governance or sword. It’s each mother or father’s dharma to boost their younger daughters in a cultured atmosphere and train them to behave decently.),” mentioned the Ballia MLA when requested to touch upon the Hathras gang-rape case.
“If it’s the authorities’s dharma is to offer safety, it’s the household’s dharma to show good values to their kids. It is just the mix of presidency and good values that may make the nation lovely,” he mentioned.
