No right to clap on Vivekananda's speech if disrespectful to women: Modi

Published On : 12 Sep 2017


New Delhi, (IANS) Asserting that women were God's creation, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that no one who was disrespectful to women had the right to take pride in Swami Vivekananda's famous speech in Chicago in 1893.

"Will we not fight against evils in our society? I want to ask young people -- do we respect women? Do we look at them with dignity? Those who do, I salute them 100 times," Modi said while speaking at a function here to commemorate the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda's address to World Parliament of Religions in the United States.

"However, if there are people who cannot see a human inside (woman), then do we have the right to clap for 'sisters and brothers of America' (speech)," Modi asked.
