2015 2:40 pm Related News Chhattisgarh has among the worst figures of witchcraft violence in the country almost all against vulnerable women Over 90 per cent victims of the around 1500 police cases reported in the state in the last 14 years have been either widows or women separated from husbands or women with no children Around 250 of them says Dr Dinesh Mishra president of the Andhshraddha Unmulan Samiti have been killed It has been 20 years now that the Raipur-based Mishra has been working for women such as them through his organisation which fights superstition in the tribal and rural belts of the state For his efforts apart from the state government’s ‘Chhattisgarh Alankaran’ he has been honoured by the Centre for “spreading scientific temper in the country” READ: Why being a rationalist is not easy Mishra says that when he began medical practice in the early 1990s he was surprised at the number of people visiting ojhas and tantriks for treatment “Women were routinely termed tonhi (witches) and humiliated publicly” Share This Article Related Article The victims were forced to eat excreta and consume urine They were stripped paraded through streets with heads tonsured Sometimes they were ostracised or boycotted Mishra realised that he needed to go beyond clinical work if he wanted to improve rural health and fight such dogmas In 1995 he with a few others founded the Samiti and made witch-hunting the focus of its efforts “We visited villages held camps” he says He has conducted workshops on the issue for various Central ministries and held special sessions for women in jails He and volunteers also hold dharnas against jyotishis and babas who claim to cure people through any form of mystical treatment It was largely thanks to his efforts that the Chhattisgarh government enacted the Tonhi Pratadna Nivaran Adhiniyam in 2005 Under the law terming a person “tonhi (witch)” invites three-year rigorous imprisonment while torturing her physically or mentally can lead to five-year RI Mishra’s work is self-funded as he has refused support from even the Women and Child Development Department “It helps us remain independent” he says A major challenge Mishra says continues to be rehabilitation of victims and their families who bear the stigma even after the violence He has been able to help some of the victims get anganwadi-like jobs Besides Mishra says there are few convictions as not many eyewitness villagers come forward Like other rationalists he also faces threats mostly in the form of anonymous text messages or phone calls However Mishra adds these have fallen over the years “Some risks have to be taken if we want to do this work… People now respect us” Then there are other rewards On January 26 this year he notes proudly his organisation felicitated Tirith Bai Shyama Bai and Bisahin Bai for their efforts against superstition Branded witches in 2001 the three women of Lachkera village in Gariyaband have
