In order to prevent crime and the repercussions that arise after committing them, Sakina Foundation, a city-based NGO, has started a pilot project, 'Know your neighbor, Know your colony.' Under the campaign Insaniyat, this project will motivate people to stop the crime by involving them in a series of counseling sessions.
According to Asif Hussain Sohail of Sakina Foundation, the city has seen a huge spike in crimes such as murders, rapes, molestations, and violence.
It is reported that the Foundation has been taking the help of police officials, community and religious leaders, Basti committees, and welfare associations to identify conflicts in the localities and take steps to address them by counseling people who are involved. The initiative also aims to counsel rowdy sheeters and brief them on the consequences they and their families have to face after the crime is committed.
On its first, the Foundation conducted a program in Surya Nagar Colony in Shaikpet division, where Golconda Inspector Chandrashekhar Reddy and ACP Shiva Maruthi had an interaction with the residents and west zone rowdy sheeters and asked them to end their rivalries and lead a peaceful life.
Reports also say that the Foundation is trying to help them find jobs and assist with their children's studies. Asif Hussain added that six major cases had been resolved during four campaigns organized in Surya Nagar Colony, Tolichowki slums, and Al-Hamra Colony. Asif also stated that such campaigns would be organized in every police station limits of the twin cities.
