columns of your esteemed daily, I wish to voice my deep concern about crimes against
When these tiny
tots should be going to school and playing, their soft hands are overused and exploited by
their employers. Though our Constitution grants freedom and right to play and education to
every child, we find so many children enslaved in affluent houses, tea shops and factories doing menial jobs. The laws
governing child abuse generally do not help them as there is nobody to fight for their
cause. The factory owners find cheap labor in these children and the affluent class find
these children as handy domestic help.
These children are
the sole bread winners for their families and helpless to raise their voice against the
injustice done to them. Their only hope lies in the voluntary organizations. Therefore,
the government and the concerned authorities should frame suitable laws against child
abuse and enforce these laws stringently taking punitive action against the perpetrators
of child abuse of any kind.
