Writing in tough; Up until last year, the idea of writing a book wouldn’t even have crossed my mind. Udaari and my study of the crime changed all that. I felt that I had the moral responsibility, not to mention a burning desire, to write about a problem that affected me in the deepest possible manner. All of us need to work towards protecting our children from abuse. They deserve that. The book is a step that I am taking as a citizen to help eliminate child sexual abuse.
We wish Ahsan best of luck for the book and appreciate his efforts to bring a positive change in our world and help those who cannot raise their voice of the topic that is considered as a ‘taboo’ topic in our society.
