‘Domestic violence needs to be removed from home’

Kathmandu, June 6: Minister of Women, Children and Senior Citizen Bhagwati Chaudhary said that domestic violence and discrimination against women need to be removed from home. 

Addressing a program organized by the National Federation of Dalit Women (NFDW) to make a study conducted on the impact of violence caused by inter-caste marriage against the Dalit female public, Minister Chaudhary said, “ The work of ending violence needs to be initiated from dom and musahar female of Terai. The Ministry will bring a program of commercializing the traditional occupation to make them self-reliant.” 

Chairman of the NFDW Durga Sob, said that according to the study carried out by NFDW among 120 intercaste married couples from districts such as Kaski, Banke, Kailali, and Siraha, it showed that 71 per cent of them are living in fear, intimidation and torment. They are not being able to feel safe and secure, 

The study showed that behaviors such as character assassination, throwing insults in public places and not allowing them to be reestablished in society have been increasing. 70 per cent are experiencing insults in public places. Even though there is acceptance of intercaste marriage, many are experiencing domestic violence. 

25 per cent of children that are born from an intercaste even do not attain a birth certificate. It is observed cases such as human trafficking cases have been filed more in the marital union between Dali males and non-Dalit females because of unacceptance from the household of the female side. 

Chairman of the National Dalit Federation Devraj Bishwokarma said, “ The justice needs to be delivered swiftly in cases filed in intercaste marriage scenario. The rescue center at local levels, legal aid from law  and law enforcement needs to be accelerated.”
