ALCOHOL BEHIND VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN: KERALA MINISTER

Inside India

Brutality against women inside and outside homes are very closely connected to the widespread availability and abuse of alcohol. A massive campaign against the use of alcohol is the need of the hour to counter the violence against women, said MK Muneer, Minister for Social Welfare and Panchayats, in Kerala. Addressing a meeting of service providers and beneficiaries involved in implementation of the Protection of Women against Domestic Violence Act, 2005, on 20 February in Thiruvananthapuram, Muneer said a total ban on alcohol in phases should be a long-term goal. He asked the local bodies to take the lead in organising mass awareness campaigns against the ill-effects of alcohol addiction. He urged them to aim at creating alcohol-free panchayats. Social activist and poet Sugathakumari said alcohol was at the root of all kinds of violence in society, from increasing number of road accidents to abuse of children by their parents.
