BENGALURU: A silent movement called #SHE (Save Her Existence) was organised by Juvenile Care in Town Hall on January 14, 2017 in order to support the girls and the victims of mass molestation in the city.
A youth led organisation Juvenile Care, working towards child right awareness and child abuse eradication conducted a silent movement with the support of students from different colleges in Bengaluru. “This is our duty to create awareness among the students regarding steps to be taken in case of any sort of sexual abuse. The movement is aimed to bridge the gap between parents, police and children,” said Rahul Prasad, Founder and the Managing Trustee of the organisation.
Students from various colleges had participated in the movement and shared their experiences in their life. “I was born and brought up in Bengaluru and I know this city very well. The situations and the attitude of the people have been changing day by day. Living in the city is becoming difficult and the number of criminal activities are increasing,” shared Kesia Nikhita, one of the supporters of the movement.
The anger of college students was quite evident with respect to the recent mass molestation. A member of the organising team Abhigyan told that the trend of conducting protest become very normal after any incident takes place.
People will protest towards the authority, but the organisation tries to change the attitude of the society and work in the rural set ups of India and make sure that the coming generations are safe.
An acid attack survivor, Pragyan Singh and other social activists were also present in the movement to support the cause.
