Ensure ideal working atmosphere for women
It's highly appreciating that, police have recovered the stolen bike in the shortest possible time. It was the only means of Shahanaj, a single mother of two daughters, to maintain their livelihood.Â Shahanaj's struggle came to the limelight when her story was posted on social media Facebook by an online. Several users hailed her courage and determination. After the bike was stolen, many of them expressed their eagerness to stand by her along with necessary support.
Â We do appreciate Shahanaj's will-power and courage. Obviously, it needs mental strength to choose a hiring bike-rider's profession in a male dominated society like us. Certainly, her work will encourage several other jobless women who have been fighting hard to get bread and butter for their families. In that case, the authorities concerned should come forward extending their helping hands to these courageous women.
The police must also investigate thoroughly to find out whether the arrested person was a professional thief, and for what reason he had stolen the bike. Any suppressive behaviour to a working woman like Shahanaj would discourage hundreds of Shahanaj. It's our social duty to protect them from unnecessary trouble.
