Ali Gul Pir is raising his voice against gender-based violence and wants more to join in.

The sketch shows Kashif Hussain as a violent husband who abuses his wife, played by Mehar Bano. Ali Gul Pir plays the bystander who could've ignored being a witness to the incidents but instead calls the police on the abusive husband.

"We all have a role to play in changing the conversation around gender-based violence (GBV)," says Ali Gul Pir. "Whether it’s the way we think about the issues, talk about victims, or the actions we take to make safer and more inclusive societies and communities."

He ended his note with: "This affects us all."
