Child rape, sexual abuse became moral epidemic: Kailash Satyarthi

11 Septembre 2017

"Child rape and sexual abuse has become a moral epidemic that haunts our society... we can no longer remain silent spectators".

Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi on Tuesday set on a march across the country to mobilise action against sexual abuse and trafficking of children.

"If our children are not safe in India, if our children are not safe in schools, then we have to change it", 63-year-old Satyarthi told NDTV television.

"We can not be silent spectators as our silence is breeding more violence against innocent children".

He said while the victims and their families were living in fear, the rapists were fearlessly roaming around freely and it should not be allowed to continue.

Satyarthi has been campaigning for the freedom, safety and security for children across the globe for the past 36 years.

"My war to end all forms of abuse against children has started today".

"I will do everything possible to stop child rape", Satyarthi said. "That is why the Bharat Yatra is the beginning of an all-out war on rape, abuse and trafficking", he said.

Though it was a hot and humid forenoon, a good number of enthusiastic students from various schools and colleges joined the activists constantly raising slogans against child trafficking and sexual abuse.

The Bharat Yatra, launched from the Vivekananda Rock Memorial here, is slated to conclude on October 16 in New Delhi.

After the yatra was flagged off, the rallyists reached the venue of the inaugural function, where several religious leaders addressed the gathering.
