Hi, I’m Raj

Survivor of domestic abuse, forced marriages and attempted murder

Over 20 years I stayed silent. Not because I had nothing to say, but because I was told I would die if I did.

Having barely escaped with my life after horrific acts of domestic abuse and sexual violence, plus two failed forced marriage attempts, all committed by the people I was meant to trust, my own family members and then suffering abuse and attempted murder and at the hands of my ex-partner, I stand here today proud to have taken back the voice that was so viciously stolen from me.

TEDx Talk

Why Me?

You never think it will happen to you. That’s the thing about abuse. It’s the thing that happens to other people, but never to you. I was broken after a decade of emotional, physical, sexual and financial abuse. I looked at challenging the question ‘Why Me?’
