“As a father of a daughter, I would say, that a society which can’t give women the respect that they deserve doesn’t deserve to be called a civilized society,” he said in Hindi. The actor, who has always endorsed martial arts and self-defense training, is encouraging women to realize that they’re strong and can protect themselves. “Girls are not weak than men. You are capable of protecting yourself. There are small techniques in martial arts to handle men. Nobody has the power to touch you without your consent. You don’t have to be scared, but just have to stay alert. Learn self-defense and if someone tries to give you some advice on your clothes, please tell them to mind their own business,” he further said in the video.
