Hyderabad, January 07:

(Siasat News) Mr. Justice A. Lakshmana Rao, retired Chief Justice of A.P. High Court said that in order to prevent crimes against women and for punishing the culprits, Human Rights charter issued by U.N.O in 1993 should be implemented. At the same time, there is a need to bring together all those persons who are against atrocities on women. He was addressing a press conference at Press Club at Somajiguda yesterday.

Addressing the newsmen, he suggested that issues pertaining to women should be included in the school syllabus. This press conference was held in the wake of Delhi rape case. It was organized by Human Rights observers. Justice Lakshmana Rao further told that even the educated women tolerate excesses on them quietly. They have an apprehension that if they break family relations, society won’t accept them and also there would be a threat to their lives.

President of Human Rights observers, Mr. Mohammed Tameem expressed his concern on the increasing number of crimes against women and said that at every third minute, an incident of crime against women takes place and every half an hour rape is committed. In the same way at every 77th minute, dowry death occurs. He felt the need to create awareness among the people to prevent such crimes. Russian delegate of human rights Ms. Adeena Qasimova, German delegate Ashin Andre and Iranian delegate Ms. Mayam also addressed the media persons and stressed the need to take stern action against those who commit such sins.

Chief Advisor of Human Rights observer, Mr. P.S. Ganesh, Mr. A. Saman, General Secretary and incharge chief, Mr. Waseem were also present in the press conference.
