Whenever that person comes, he use to spend a lot of time with the 7-year-old child. He use to watch him While bathing, he removes his clothes, apply soap on her body, and sexually exploit him. The child was small, So, he could not understand anything. Then his uncle started to rape him. The child never share this thing with anyone, Because he was scared.

Who is this child?
This story which we have told you is not a story of a movie but it is a real incident. The child who was a victim of rape and sexual abused for 11 years have become an inspiration for millions of people today. Today he is a motivational speaker, a writer, an activist. He has done a lot of work for the LGBT community and still doing it. Working for women, children, animals. Whenever the voice raises for their rights Fights for children who face sexual abuse. That child is now 39 years old, his name is ‘Harish Iyer’. Activist Harish Iyer has now become a politician too. Why? Because he has joined the Congress. Harish told this by posting a number of posts on Twitter.
Because of joining Congress, Harish is now on social media. When reporters asked him why he joined Congress on this Harish said,
‘Congress wrote clearly in its manifesto, that they will work for people of LGBT community. A lot of things have been written in their manifesto for Minorities That’s why I joined the Congress. ‘
Let me tell you that almost all the parties had said before the elections, that they will give tickets to women. But the truth is, everyone knows Very few women have been given tickets for the Lok Sabha elections. Congress has promised to give 33 per cent reservation to women in government manifesto along with Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha. But whether this promise will be done or not, it will only be known when the Congress government will be formed. At present, it is not known whether the government will be formed of the party. But, of course, now Congress has not chosen 33 percent of the woman candidates for the election. The number of women candidates is quite low.
