We witnessed a recent controversy made by BJP leader OP Dhankar about importing girls from Bihar for Haryanavi Youths and politicization of “Notion of Honour” by the name of Love Jihad. The political class of Haryana is always an ignorant and highly patriarchal especially for Issues related to women. By contesting this Assembly election we can put this problem in political arena which will may resulted in mass mobilization against the menace of Bride Trafficking and a policy level change.
Ghaushia Khan a Bride trafficking survivor and Anti-trafficking activist is only woman candidate from the Nuh assembly seat. (Watch a fiction story based on her life http://bit.ly/nuhassembly). She is contesting as Independent candidate with a commitment to raise the Issues of Bride Trafficking, Female infanticide, Domestic violence, Honour crimes and property rights of Women.
Most of you are well aware that EMPOWER PEOPLE was founded to combat Bride trafficking and its contributing factors in Destination and source areas. As of Bride trafficking is a result of many social and historical reasons we are trying to involve people from all sake of life, different stake holders and local community leaders.
We are focusing in social empowerment of Bride trafficking survivors to ensure their safe and secure life in destination area. Hundreds of Paro/ Molki women successfully claimed their property rights and inheritance for their children and enjoying their familial rights (however it is still not satisfactory and we are continuously working to ensure their right).
And to continue our struggle we have decided to contest this assembly election.
Yesterday we started door to door election campaign and street meetings in Nuh. Here is some photograph. https://www.facebook.com/ghaushiakhan/posts/686694788091106
