Sonu Sood’s endeavour to see as many migrants home as possible has yielded tremendous results.He is not to another problem that plagues Indians during these times of the violent virus.
Says Sonu, “In smaller cities and towns we’ve seen the rise in cases of domestic violence during the lockdown. We need to create awareness of this problem specially in the non-metropolitan sector .”
Sonu is in consultation with a lot organizations. “There is a foundation Hothur which has done a lot of good work with acid-attack survivors. We are trying to team up with such organizations to create awareness on this issue.”
Sonu feels there is a need for women to come forward to report cases of domestic violence. “The problem is aggravated because women don’t report these cases . That’s why it persists.Some kind of strict action against perpetrators of domestic violence and some strong law-enforced remedies are required.We are looking into all that.”
