DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SURVIVOR SPEAKS OUT

A Port Coquitlam woman who survived being shot in the face by her estranged husband is speaking out against what she calls an epidemic of domestic violence in the Indo-Canadian community. In an exclusive interview with CBC News, Gurjeet Kaur Ghuman described how her husband climbed into her car last October in Port Coquitlam with a gun, shot her and then turned the gun on himself. Gurjeet Kaur Ghuman was left blind after her husband shot her twice in the head in October. Parmajit Singh Ghuman died, but the woman he intended to kill lived. "He actually shot me twice in my head, one right by my eyes and one right through my brain," she said. Ghuman, who is now blind, said she felt the need to tell her story because so many other Indo-Canadian women in B.C.'s Lower Mainland have been victims of domestic violence. Several have not survived.

Thank You For Speaking Out.

Gurjeet Kaur Ghuman's story should be heard by every Indo-Canadian, especially males, so they can realize how wrong and harmful abuse is.

Thanks to Pooja for putting up this story.

I can't wait to see what the punjabi media will say about this story.

I bet papers like the voice led by there racist editor Rattan Mall will go off on another one his anti-white rant's about the media covering the problems of wife killing in the punjabi culture. He might even attack Ms.Ghuman for speaking out about what happened to her to the Province.

The sad thing is that alarge portion of the punjabi community wants to this problem to go away, instead of deal with this problem.

Spousal abuse isn't just localized to the Indo-Canadian community. In most cases the abused doesn't speak up because of their personal fears and hopes but its the same in all cultures. Indians don't generally rely on shelters because many have families and friends who are there to help them. The ones that are abused to the point of no return are the ones who don't seek help. No amount of education, media or even intervention is going to help them. Ms Ghuman speaking out is good thing and if it helps one person, she has succeeded. As far as punjabi media is concerned, I don't know who reads because they first need to take basic grammer lessons before they go off on their rants.
