Hyderabad: Rachakonda Police Commissioner Mahesh M Bhagwat released ‘Ammay’, a short film on Wednesday which focuses on safety and empowerment of women here on Tuesday evening.
The film urges women to act for themselves and not tolerate any misbehavior from anyone.
“When a man imposes himself on a woman, a woman must not forget that she has more strength to resist because her need to survive is stronger than a man’s lustful desire. Women can develop such strength and confidence in being brave and learning self-defense,” Bhagwat said, appreciating director Sashank Ramanujan who directed “Ammay,” after his previous works like “Beautiful Life” and “Marolokam.”
The commissioner also appreciated the work of the actors and the inspiring message through the short film asking women to defend themselves instead of waiting for someone to come and rescue them. He cited the example of teaching ‘Kalaripayattu’, a form of martial art, to 1,000 female police cadets in Rachakonda.
“Although the police are always there and with the 100 the response time in Rachakonda is only seven and a half minutes, the girls must always have the confidence to defend themselves in any case, at least until when the police arrive,” he said.
He further stated that in 2020, there was an increase in the recording of cases of crimes against women, which was due to more women trusting the police and reaching out to file a complaint. and register cases to bring the culprits to account. Asking women to dial 100 in case of emergency and at odd hours if no transport is available, Bhagwat also asked parents to educate their children on good and bad contacts and not to tolerate no abuse.
