The people of India have two opinions on this, some people believe that women should also be given combat roles in the armed forces while some people believe that women should not be given combat roles at all. Many also argue that there should be exactly the same standards of respect for women and men.
If women leave behind the criteria of men, then they should also get equal rights, this debate is increasing rapidly in India for the last few days, because now it is being demanded that the Indian Army and the Indian Armed Forces should be given the rank of General. Balanced should be given. Women should also be given equal opportunities. There should be no discrimination between women and men at all.
Also we saw that some women officers had gone to the Supreme Court demanding permanent commission and the court had ordered the Government of India to appoint them, which means the court would have won the case.
But now it is a matter of separate debate whether general balancing of the Indian Armed Forces is good for the efficiency of the Indian Army? Will inducting women into combat roles make the Indian Armed Forces a sustainable force? Well or not, no one can deny that now women are walking shoulder to shoulder with men in every field.
We have seen that like western countries, Indian Armed Forces have also opened their doors for women for a long time, but in some places women did not have rights, that is, it would not be wrong to say that the role of women in India’s armed forces was limited. . But now with the changing times, the Indian Army has also started changing itself.
And has taken a very big decision regarding its women officers. It seems to me that the government also has a big hand behind this decision. Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave the slogan of Beti Bachao Beti Padhao and now the government also wants to promote the role of daughters in the Indian Armed Forces.
Now the Government of India also wants the same, so how can the Indian Armed Forces back down? Recently, the Indian Research Defense in the Army’s Board of Directors has approved the promotion of 108 women officers to the rank of Colonel.
