Women should learn boxing & Karate: Mary Kom

New Delhi: The world-class boxer also suggested that women should learn boxing and karate to protect themselves. “Sometimes it is very shocking for me, every month we have seen rape stories in our country, as crime is increasing day by day along with rape cases.

For women’s safety, of course, the government will take steps. My point of view is to motivate women to learn something to protect themselves. Women can learn boxing and karate to protect themselves,” Mary Kom said.

In the ongoing winter session, many women MPs demanded strict punishment, including ‘public lynching’, for culprits of the rape and brutal murder of a woman veterinarian in Telangana,”. These types of people (rape accused) need to be brought out in public and lynched.”

MP Jaya Bachchan said. When Mary Kom was asked whether she supports hanging the rapists in public or lynching them, she said: “Government has decided the punishment. I am not the right person to speak on that. But punishment should be given to the culprits, if we do not punish them, then the crime will continue.” Kom is the only woman to become World Amateur Boxing champion for a record six times.
