Women respect in Hinduism
Bharat has always offered women equal and at times superior opportunities, be it the archery division of army in Chanakya’s time, performing a yagna, conferring degrees like Ganini, Mahattara,etc; or mastering the 64 Kalas that was a must for a woman that included art of solving riddles, mechanics, knowledge of foreign languages, etc.
In the age of 24/7 media, we have become so accustomed to the portrayal of women as a sum total of their sexual body parts, that we do not even realize when in real life also we manifest that behavior and objectify women by singling out body parts of women without finding anything wrong in doing so.
Self styled feminists eagerly wait for occasions like Navaratri and Durgostsava to slander Indic virtues. But to what extent does this criticism holds ground is a matter of question which we need to address.
विश्व के मुख्य तीन बड़े धर्म इस्लाम, क्रिश्चियनिटी और सत्य सनातन हिंदू धर्म में से हिंदू धर्म ही एकमात्र ऐसा धर्म है जिसमें परमेश्वर के स्त्री रूप को समान मान्यता दी गई है। भगवान शिव को कई अलग-अलग रूप में पूजा जाता है। जिनमें से एक है उनका अर्द्धनारीश्वर रूप। शिव का यह अवतार स्त्री और पुरुष की समानता दर्शाता है।
In our country and especially in Hindu religion a woman is believed to be Laxmi, a capable, educated and independent woman. This holds true for Muslim women too who if given a chance can be of real strength to the country both economically and emotionally.
