Feminist activist Kavita Krishnan said that a life could be saved if people took notice of domestic violence against women and took action to stop it. She added that domestic violence is largely seen as a “private matter”, a “lovers’ quarrel” often left unaddressed, leading to incidents like the murder of Shraddha Walker by her lover Aftab Ameen Poonawala.
"Aftab must be tried, convicted and punished for murdering Shraddha, chopping up her body and covering up his crime. But that’s a job for the police and prosecution. What can we, ordinary people shocked by this killing, do to bring change and prevent such violence faced by women?" she questions.
Kavita suggests six ways to bring change in society to prevent such murders and what each of us can and must do to help bring about such change. Read her Facebook post here:
