Shradhha Walkar was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend Aftab Poonawalla. The crime has shaken the country's conscience. The sheer brutality and cold bloodedness of Aftab's actions has overshadowed another story- that Shraddha was allegedly a victim of domestic violence, her friends say Aftab would beat her regularly, she even feared for her life but was not in a position to walk away so easily. But instead of focusing on this, the love jihad bogey is back in the discourse, driven by BJP leaders who are using this crime to polarise communities. Why is the focus being diverted from crimes against women to divisive issues?
