Child Abuse in India: A Secret?

Is child abuse India’s worst kept secret? Isn’t it sound’s so shocking. Still now many people are not aware of the child abuse. But it’s the truth and it’s going to touch its peak. Is everybody sleeping peacefully and not aware of the environment in which they are, has been already polluted. A survey conducted in 2007 by the Women and Child Development Ministry and the NGO Prayas in association with UNICEF and Save the Children across 13 states and with a sample size of 12,447. The shocking details were laid bare to the entire nation. The survey found that 53.22 per cent of children reported having faced one or more forms of molestation. Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Assam and Delhi had reported the highest percentage of such incidents at that time. In 50% of the cases, the abusers were known to the child or were in a position of trust and responsibility and most children did not report the matter to anyone.

The child abuse in different types is rising day by day like molestation, under age girls throwing into flesh trade, domestic violence, child labor and many more. Why? These types of crimes are being created. I don’t think those people whoever are committing these crimes are normal. He/she must be a mentally sick person. Everybody say that child is gods gift. A gift of god means it is related to god. So how can they think to do such dirty things to the little once? So don’t wait until your child turn comes. So “It’s better to do your job before than after” following this proverb come forward and decide what will be the right way to stop child abuse. I am giving my view to stop child abuse.

  • Parents should be a best friend of a child so that he/she can share everything with his parents.
  • Donate to a genuine NGO for children so that some children can be saved.
  • The person who is being punished for child abuse simultaneously they should be mentally cured inside the jail. They should realize what they have done.
World Day for prevention of child abuse is 19 November. Is one day enough to kill the germs of child abuse? Where everyday, at every moment or at every second somewhere a child is crying for help. We can’t hear or we don’t want to listen the screams of the child. I think everyday should be a prevention day for child abuse. Come on wake up everybody and do something for a secured and better tomorrow for your loved ones.
