    Salam Alai kum.
    "Learn something from GIO."
    Wah! Kya bath hai!
    You are too late.It is time for me to preach the younger generation out of my experience.
    Had my father covered me from head to toe and dumped me within four walls, I would have been a waste on earth and wouldn't have been what I am today.
    Better late than never. I am happy that the GIO's have taken courage to walk down the streets raising their voice demanding better security of women.This is the stepping stone,gradually the cover will vanish and they will learn to walk on the streets like modern ladies to build a greater India.
    Had they done this earlier by now women would have had a better place.
    In places where uniforms dress codes are prescribed,colleges or work place, if girls enter exposed with miniskirts or bikinies,sure they will be pushed out. so will be the fate of the men who enter with half pant or no pant.
    Seats reserved for women on bus and separate ladies compartments on train are provided on humanitarian grounds and to meet the demands of the organizations that protested earlier.
    God created woman as a companion to man ,to walk beside him,love, share and care.They should learn to respect each other . Neither man is superior to woman, nor the woman is inferior to man.They both are equal.
    Change your attitude towards women. Treat them as your equal. Respect their views. give them their freedom.Allow them to walk raising their heads.You will find heaven on earth.

    Good Job by GIO ..Masha allah..Please keep it up,shows a good unity to nation..
    nwdays safety of indian women is in danger , a women walks safely alone in midnight can b a day of womens day.. women shd b sent alone in midnight in a idle area with hiding security scods arranged by department who will follow HER in back stage so that they can trace the upcming rapists who attacks women when shez alone this is the only measure wher we can tackle rapes evrwer, culprits who are caught in this must chemical castrated and punishED death sentence ,

    Dear daughters of india untill and unless this govt. doesnt changes the law rape murder will continue as b4. U may conduct any number of rallys any number of protest nothing will happen. It will b a total waste. Wastage of ur time and energy. Instead better to make the rally for changing the laws. It makes the sense. B4 also many rallys took place. Can anyone tell me anything progress happened? I am sure nothing will happen. Dear daughters of india instead of wasting ur time in attending such rallys try to join karate classes. Or whenever u come out of the house you have to carry aspraybottle full of chilly powder. If u come across any eve teaser rapist spray to his eys then thrash him with your sandals. He will never never come near to any lady. By conducting rallys nothing will happen.

    MS.Juliet and theresa you don't want separate bus but you want seats reserved for women on bus, you don't want separate trains but you need ladies compartments......what kind of equality you want ? So called modern girls wear exposed and miniskirts what you want men wear half pant in duty hours or in Colleges ? Please donot talk about equality becaus God created men and women differently, both are different in their nature. Learn something from GIO.

    Un-presidented move by Girls Islamic Organization. We need to teach our children to live modestly. We are inviting trouble by accepting alien culture. Should we stick to our culture safety is bound to come.

    Well said Juliet. Every women need safety and they need not get scared to move freely in the Soceity. Whether day time or Night time. Government take strict action/punish in public in case of rape/murder immediately not to prolong the case.

    The Indian women need safety to move freely in an Independent India irrespective of their job, during night shift or day shift.If safety is provided why do we need a separate bus? Are we not fighting for equality? Do we require a separate class room or office room!!!
