I came across this news from a forwarded e-mail. I find this as my responsibility to make spread it as much as possible.
Initiative: A 24hrs round the clock helpline has been started to support victims of honor killing
“A dedicated round-the-clock helpline number, e-mail and postal support” said team member Dr. Ashu Kumar
from AIIMS on Friday.
Numbers: 09891082658, 09015216082, 09650537374
Who Started: “Human Rescue Team” AIIMS
“The people who have dared to swim against the tide have been attacked by extremists brutally. We have to reach out to them. Moreover, the law has to become stringent with such criminals. Another important area is arrangement of counselling for such families who come under the influence of social extremists and exercise brutality on their own loved ones. The media and local activists too play a very important role in spreading the message,” noted a release issued by the group.
“According to rough statistics, about a thousand young people have been killed for saving the honour of castes in the last year(2010) in the country and the number, along with the cruelty of these murders, seems to be ever increasing,” added Dr. Ashu kumar AIIMS New Delhi
This is disgusting. People are being killed in honor of the caste? What the hell is govt doing? Arent they punishing the culprits?
Finally. Thank you very much to Dr. Ashu Kumar from AIIMS for this initiative.
I request everyone reading this to please spread this so that more and more people can be benefitted from such initiative.
