Nail Fighting - Girl Pupils Taught How to Nail Sex Pests

Teachers at the Vidyanidhi School and Junior College in Mumbaia, India, are under fire after they wrote to all the girl students warning them that they needed to take responsibility for protecting themselves from a sex attack – by growing long fingernails.

The letter sent by the school's teachers to female pupils follows a spate of high-profile attacks in India against mostly young women that has sparked criticism that neither the police nor the government are doing enough to protect women.

The school's headteacher rejected criticism of the suggestion and added that they were also giving the girls who were growing their fingernails special self defence lessons on how to use them to the best advantage if they are ever attacked.

The letter includes tips from martial arts expert Vinod Koombang who specified exactly how long the nail should be to the exact millimetre, warning that too long and the nails will break.

Dr Mehta, trustee of Vidyanidhi School and Junior College, said, "In the past we have discouraged long nails for fashion reasons but in this case we are not encouraging the girls to grow their nails for fashion, but for their own safekeeping. We are convinced that long nails may well help them in the future if they ever find themselves in difficulty."
