They additional, “The ruling establishes what should to be clear in our culture, that railway workers might not instruct or even request gals to go due to the fact their presence bothers some gentleman, even when male passengers pick to pray in the carriage. It is painful that we are even now pressured to battle in excess of this in the courts, and we are satisfied that the courtroom has manufactured very clear what a railway guard need to comprehend for himself. The presence of females does not ‘harm modesty.’ Our presence is portion of the community house, and we shall not be moved.”
