“These days we get to hear a lot of reports on sexual abuse and child abuse. In addition, we get to hear reports on victims of various means of violence. Furthermore, the girls who are newcomers to the field face incidents of harassment's. The reason behind all this is the mentality of those who inflict violence" she added.
Those who are under immense mental pressures are using violence against another as a mean of releasing that pressure, she says, adding that prevailing system is responsible for it.
"The prevailing system is a dictatorial government of which the power is gathered around one family. That is why all this is happening. If that particular pressure is eliminated these kind of crimes can be reduced, “she emphasized.
