According to Deputy Women, Family, and Community Development Minister Datuk Aiman Athirah Sabu, Selangor has recorded the highest number of domestic violence cases, logging 4,690 cases from 2020 to August 2023.

The number was based on police statistics, which showed a total of 22,908 cases of domestic violence nationwide.

“There was a sharp increase in cases in 2021 to 7,468, compared with 5,260 cases recorded in 2020. The number of domestic violence cases is still high in 2022, although it shows a slight drop to 6,540 cases.”

“The Waja Squad acts as an agent of change to deal with violence against women in the community, and help build a society which helps each other and instils harmony,” she said, adding that there are 26,910 members of the Waja Squad in Selangor.

She also said that 1,012 Waja Squad psychosocial programmes had been carried out in communities nationwide, with 72,942 individuals being treated, and of that number, 104 psychosocial programmes have been carried out, involving 12,506 individuals in Selangor.

Aiman Athirah explained that the Waja Squad programmes had created a good synergy between the government and the community in dealing with violence against women and expressed hope that the Selangor-level Semarak Waja Squad 2023 programme will provide benefits to the community in the state.
