The team of ‘Arth-The Destination’ has recently joined hands with UN Women to launch a campaign called #EndViolenceAgainstWomen.

The cast says, through the campaign they want to speak on, and highlight various aspects of abuse against women and girls.

The aim of the campaign is to eliminate all the forms of abuse. Shaan Shahid, the protagonist in the movie is leading the campaign along with his teammates.

It speaks on actual issues, highlights real-life facts and reflects struggles that artists go through in their journey of life, especially female artists.

Uzma Hassan, who plays Shabana Azmi, in the movie, goes through an emotional breakdown and abuse in her marriage in the movie.

She says, that “When we speak of abuse, never does it occur to us that the concept of it could involve emotional havoc or embroil the internal sentimentality of a person or his/her psyche.”

“The mental image of abuse itself is that of a physical strike. But that’s not where it begins. Before it takes that form, a woman goes through psychological and emotional distress. That is what we need to speak of and that is where we need to begin our stories from.”

Humaima Malik further added that “And to speak on this aspect of abuse is no minor matter as the idea of it has always been misperceived. It’s about time that the victims start speaking up and unveiling their stories.”

The aim of the campaign is to eliminate all the forms of abuse. Shaan Shahid, the protagonist in the movie is leading the campaign along with his teammates.

Mohib Mirza, on the other hand, said, “We think that we have a right on other people’s lives. Sadly, that’s how we have been brought up. We feel absolute freedom in imposing our judgment on others, especially upon women. Such are the acts constituting and strengthening patriarchy in the society for a very long time now. We witness it but we don’t realize how poisonous it is.”
