To protest growing incidents of rapes of minors, a large number of students, faculty and staff members of Shoolini University took out a silent protest candle march in Solan on April 16. The march was aimed to sensitise people about the extremely inhuman acts meted out to women and children.
The vigil was a silent one, with candles, sealed mouths and blind-folded eyes, meant to portray a failing system. Led by Pro Chancellor Mr Satish Anand, Vice Chancellor Prof P K Khosla and President of the Foundation for Life Sciences and Business Management Mrs Saroj Khosla, The rally was flagged off from SILB to Deputy Commissioner’s Office, Solan.
It was a display of strength and solidarity as students as well as staff had voluntary gathered to led their support. Sharing his sentiments, Prof Khosla remarked that such incidents are very sad and painful. He said that parents must sensitise young children, especially boys.
They should be taught human values and respect to all human beings. He also said that rapists have no religion and that they should be given harsh punishment. Data shows that India is fourth country in the world as far as crimes against women are concerned. Such brutal incidents, like the rape of minor girls, not only shake human consciousness but question our very values and humanity, he added.
