BAAT KIJIYE, SAATH DIJIYE

Dear friends,
Less than a week ago, we all heard about yet another horrific patriarchal crime take place, this time in Telangana. The father insisted his daughter to get an abortion and hired people to kill his son-in-law. Now, the daughter is a pregnant widow.

Such heinous crimes in our society continue primarily due to the deeply entrenched attitudes in regards to religion and caste, lack of police protection for the couple, and poor law enforcement. In almost all cases the perpetrator gets away with no repercussions.

Like we have mentioned before –
The strongest opposition to interfaith/inter-caste marriages comes from the parents.

Dhanak’s campaign “Baat Kijiye, Saath Dijiye” is to spread awareness among parents about their adult children’s rights –
Their #RightToChoose in the matters of marriage, or a relationship.
