He said the country was also moving in the same direction and added that a law against triple talaq was made, while new sectors were opening up for women.“Women today are getting opportunities in the armed forces and the new education policy will create new opportunities for them,” he said.Modi said that the Bhakti movement led by seers pushed and strengthened the freedom movement in the country, and now it was time to push the ‘vocal for local’ campaign.He said that seers of India always showed the path of peace, non-violence and harmony to the world and humanity, and the world gets inspiration from these messages.“Therefore, the world is once again looking at India,” he said.Speaking on the life and works of the Jain seer, Modi said he was a visionary saint who had compassion for everyone and he visited different parts of the country to work for education and women empowerment.
