DOMESTIC VOILENCE AT ITS PEAK DUE TO PANDEMIC
Coronavirus outbreak which resulted in the global pandemic has affected many sections of the society, from young children to old people every one is fighting their own battles. But this pandemic has triggered a very sensitive section of the society which is a great measure of concern. Due to lockdown women are locked inside their house, they cannot move out they cannot seek help of their parents, relative, police.
The cases of Domestic violence have increased tremendously in the lockdown women are facing a lot of stress, anxiety, pain. They are shattered mentally and physically.
Married women are being beaten up by there husbands and in-laws, but due to the pandemic they are not able to seek legal remedies. Most of the men who are stuck home and cannot go to work due to the coronavirus pandemic they get angry and frustrated and they bring out their frustration on their wives, sisters, and daughters. The lack of an income during the pandemic and the looming threat of hunger also added to the problem. Women who are financially dependent on their husbands suffered more.
According to one report, one out of the three women globally have experienced violence over their lifetimes. Due to the lockdown, many of the victims were not able to contact the police or social workers as they were trapped at home with the abusers.
And its not a matter of concern of a particular locality but this is a worldwide on-going issue
As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, reports of domestic violence up surging all over the world is worrying. The pervasive spread of the virus has forced domestic violence victims to stay at home with their abusers, leaving them with little options to find any shelter or even solace. In abusive households, women have to battle the male aggressor inside and the virus outside. As they are closely confined within the walls of their houses, living with abusive partners hurts them both physically and emotionally.
Domestic Violence: Where does India Stand? India’s condition is not an exception to the trend of an increase in violence against women during the pandemic. In the first three weeks of the nationwide lockdown, data of the National Commission for Women (NCW) indicated the expeditious upsurge in the number of domestic violence cases “between March 23 and April 16. NCW registered 587 complaints related to domestic violence against women. This was a notable upsurge from 396 complaints received in the past 25 days between February 27 and March 22”. Moreover, most of the cases were reported from states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, and Punjab.
The police are taking required efficacious measures to combat with this domestic violence pandemic. The Uttar Pradesh Police launched a helpline Number for domestic violence victims and the Kerala government and the NCW have launched a WhatsApp number to report domestic violence. Several NGOs and Helplines have been operating 24 hours to help or counsel victims of domestic violence by transferring them into a secure place and also providing counselling over the phone or on an online medium.
