The Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism and Transport, Faiyaz Koya reminded those present at the Navratri event held at the Koronivia Mandir the significance of women in society and the importance of the roles that they play.
“We all as human beings must acknowledge our female population – our mothers, our sisters and our daughters. They are effectively the source of creation and we must acknowledge that.”
Goddess Durga is recognized as the courageous and invincible Hindu goddess of war, strength and protection.
Minister Koya also stated at the event that this is the perfect time for men to sit down, understand and give due respect to the entire female population of the world.
