 Shimla, Nov 1 (IANS): Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani on Thursday urged people to celebrate the birth of girl child by ending the evil practice of female foeticide.

“It’s unfortunate that in a country like India where girls are worshipped as ‘devi’ that they feel insecure,” Smriti Irani said in the Himachal Pradesh capital.

Addressing girls under Mission Sahasi, an initiative of the ABVP to make girls fearless and self-confident, Irani said: “No matter what a girl wears or which family she belongs to, respect is her birth right.

“It was an absolutely enthralling experience to witness 1,300 young school and college girls perform martial arts in Shimla as part of self-defence training programme being organised by ABVP across the country,” the minister  said in a tweet.

Launched on December 3,1990. Nagaland Post is the first and highest circulated newspaper of Nagaland state. Nagaland Post is also the first newspaper in Nagaland to be published in multi-colour.
