I am proud of my PM, who said that you should stand up with Khavatino, both inside and outside the Supreme Court." Ravishankar Prasad said that we have said many times that this issue is neither for worship nor prayer. It is a matter of dignity of women. Today, 1 year of female self-respect has been completed and I will encourage all those who are Khawatin, who are Muslim sisters, they stood with full courage. It is a matter of great satisfaction that cases have decreased today.

Similarly, we will continue to work for women's justice.
