PATNA: Injustice can be fought also by spreading education in the society and making the masses aware of their rights!
That’s what feels the daughters of a dreaded Maoist commander Kanu Ram Munda. While Munda himself took up arms to wage a war against injustice, his two daughters just don’t agree with her father’s idea and are pursuing higher education to bring the society on the right path without getting involved in bloodbath.
The elder daughter Padmavati Munda is a post-graduation student whereas the younger daughter Binota Munda is doing graduation. Both want to become teachers and educate the poor, illiterate villagers to make them aware of their rights and fight injustice after being armed with knowledge.
Both the girls are disappointed that their father picked up arms to fight injustice and atrocities being meted out to the general masses although his mission was genuine.
“Our father’s mission was genuine but he chose the wrong path. Change can be brought also through peaceful way,” both the daughters were quoted as telling the local media.
“We want to fulfill our father’s dream by educating the masses. We will take pen for the same mission for which my father had taken up gun,” she explained.
Munda surrendered before the Jharkhand police on February 15 after frequent persuasions by his daughters to lay down arms and join the social mainstream, as per reports.
As per the surrender policy, the Jharkhand government will take care of the educational needs of the surrender Maoists’ children.
It was under this background, the authorities called the girls of the Maoists to know about their wishes.
During the interaction, the girls requested the authorities to appoint them as teachers and post at their native Jian village in Jharkhand to empower co-villagers by imparting them education.
