Aamir Khan, the Bollywood superstar, is helping an NGO build a shelter in Ahmedanagar for wronged women and abandoned girls.
The 8 acre facility will offer accommodation for abandoned girls and women, medical care for mistreated pregnant or ailing women, and schooling for young girls. It will even provide security to girls threatened for marrying outside their cast and community.
Through his reality show Satyamev Jayate, Aamir Khan exposed widespread violence against women in India, particularly highlighting female feticide and dowry deaths. The actor activist is taking his fight forward showing by example that we all can make a difference at our levels.
Many girls are killed or abandoned by their own families, many are kidnapped and pushed to flesh trade, many are killed in the name of honor, many are burnt alive for dowry, many are throttled for not bearing children, and many remain locked in their homes living a life of suffocation and oppression.
These are the evils that won’t disappear from the society overnight. But thanks to Aamir Khan for giving hope, and for showing the path!
