BJP Mahila Morcha stages strong demonstration at Irish Embassy over the tragic death of Savita and demands punishment to the guilty persons
The workers of BJP Mahila Morcha and BJP Overseas Affairs Cell under the leadership of BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta and National President of Mahila Morcha Smt. Smriti Irani staged strong demonstration at Irish Embassy at Jor Bagh protesting against the tragic death of Savita Halappanavar an Indian National living in Ireland due to backward and unrealistic law of Ireland and demanded arrest of the hospital staff and filing cases against them for the murder of Smt. Savita.
On this occasion, the BJP submitted an open protest letter to the Ambassador of Ireland Mr. Feilim McLaughlin and apprised him about the concern of Indian society. It has been stated in the letter that Mrs. Savita pleaded with the staff of Irish hospital again & again for termination of pregnancy which was of about 17 weeks. She had also pleaded that she will die if pregnancy is not medically terminated, but University Hospital Galway staff denied on the ground that termination of pregnancy is not allowed under the law of Ireland.
The BJP delegation has stated to the Ambassador that in India it is violation of human rights and deliberate murder. Even otherwise no religion or faith allows the murder of any innocent woman. The World Human Rights Organisation will condemn such tragic death. Under religious belief in Ireland termination is not allowed. Ireland is a Catholic country. BJP delegation regretted the fact that a developed country like Ireland still believes in such laws.
BJP delegation demanded the Ambassador that this law should be amended and the family members of 31 year old Mrs. Savita Halappanavar be awarded sufficient compensation for her untimely death. They have also said that this law should be amended as soon as possible so that in future no innocent woman die due to such backward law. The delegation included Convenor of Overseas Affairs Cell Shri Vijay Jolly and member of the All India BJP Mahila Morcha Sarita Chaudhary.
