Disability literally means a physical or mental state of a person that limits a person’s movement, senses or activities. Disability in our country is considered a curse. People with disabilities are very prone to violence and abuse. People with disabilities experience forms of violence and abuse similar to those without disabilities, such as physical injury, sexual assault, emotional trauma, and financial abuse. Disabled people now make up the world's largest minority, with over 650 million people, or 10% of the global population, suffering from some kind of disability. A physical, emotional, or sensory disability affects at least one out of every ten people in the majority of countries. In India, more than 50 million people suffer from disabilities in some form or another.
In this paper, we recognise the problem with the physically disabled person especially concerning children with disability and women with a disability how they are prone to sexual abuse and why the cases are not reported and, in the end, we will talk about the suggestion to stop violence in any form against them.
