Hamza Andreas Tzortzis. iERA researcher and lecturer delivered an emotional reminder about domestic violence in support of the anti-domestic violence charity Nour DV.
Nour DV is a charity which aims to engage the public, and especially the minority Muslim communities, to become aware and take action against this silent yet prevalent social injustice – domestic violence.
We believe it is important to be pro-active rather than reactive. Nour also has a strong Islamic ethos and seeks to condemn domestic violence using Islamic literature from both the Quran and the prophetic teachings. This is important in communities where there is a general but widespread misconception that Islam advocates domestic violence.
Nour are able to offer access to Islamic advisors, professional advisors and legal advisors. To contact the Muslim Community Helpline call: 0208 904 8193 | 0208 908 6715. (Monday to Friday, 10am to 1pm)
