Preity Zinta Interesting Instagram

Reacting to the brutal Kathua and Unnao rape incidents that have shocked the nation and the world alike, President Ram Nath Kovind said that none of our daughters should go through such brutality and it is every citizen's responsibility to ensure they get a safe environment to thrive in.

President Kovind stated that after 70 years of independence such incidents occurring in any part of the country is shameful. "The recent happening against a weaker underprivileged individual, especially a girl child, was alarming and has shocked us as a society", she said, adding "there is something seriously wrong in our changing life system".

He said the greatest achievement of any human being is tolerance and respect for others.

She batted for inclusion of value education in curriculum, saying "our material growth becomes meaningless, if we are not able to become good human beings".


The president was received by Governor NN Vohra, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, Legislative Assembly Speaker Kavinder Gupta and Legislative Council Chairman Haji Anayat Ali at the technical airport here, a spokesperson said.

Kovind arrived here earlier amid tight security.

The incident sparked nationwide outrage with protestors demanding justice for the eight-year-old Asifa who had a tragic death according to the charge sheet filed by the Police. The case will be heard on April 28 in the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Kathua.
