New Delhi : 23 June :- Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu called on Saturday to change the mindset of widows and said, “If a man can remarry, why can not a woman?” Naidu said at a function on International Widow Day, “People’s mindset is a problem, we need to change this mentality.”
Naidu also said that widow is miserable for both men and women, but women have to suffer more.
During a program organized by the Loomba Foundation in Vigyan Bhawan, Delhi, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad expressed similar sentiments. Prasad said, “The steps taken for the empowerment of the widows will not be successful till it is taken as a mass movement. Without changing the attitude, we can not change anything much.”
