I acknowledge with Proposal A. In combat services, women have long history since women in the western part have served in a more diverse role. They were hired for technical work, piloting, etc. they even served in large numbers during world war and disaster management. But many countries are still far behind.
We have seen women are not considered mentally, physically, and emotionally fit for the combat services as these are the toughest and only men are capable of serving in these types of services. Both the question arises of equality. Women are as suitable as a man in these services. In Indian history, many women were fighting at the frontline such as Rani Laxmi bai, Begam Hazrat Mahal, Savitribai Phule, etc. Even in Subash Chandra Bose
Azaad Hind Fauj has more than 1000 women.
Women are experts in every field and she thinks diversely to establish victory. India has deployed women into combat service especially in Jammu and Kashmir and in the northeastern states. Today smart work matter in every field and smart work include small percent of strength and more mental abilities to do things. Even if women get into combat services she is not treated well and always everyone theirs to show her weakness. No person on this earth is weak nor strong as god made everyone equal some as hidden qualities and some people’s personalities reflect those qualities.
Punita Arora 1st Indian woman to serve in the second-highest post in the army force. Padmavathy Bandopadhyay first woman as air marshal in India. Priya Jingan first woman to serve in the Indian army and many more who always keep our country’s flag high.
Does the question arise every time why women kept behind? Are not capable of protecting themselves and their country. They have the right to choose their occupation.
