PLEASE HELP TO FREE CHILD SLAVES IN INDIA.
Did you know that there are millions of child slaves in India? These are mainly children whose poverty stricken parents have been forced by circumstances to sell them into bonded labour. This is nothing but a form of modern day slavery. These children come mainly from the Dalit caste. A human rights watch report has informed that there are between 60 and 115 million child workers in India. That is more than the entire population of the UK!
For a human being to suffer, in this day and age, the indignity of untouchability is nothing short of a crime against humanity. Caste injustices, created and perpetuated in the name of god, are so utterly degrading and dehumanising that they should not be allowed to continue. It is time to admit that caste was not created by god; that god did not create the Dalits to serve the rest of us. We may not be able to change the world but we can do our little bit.
There are many organisations which campaign for abolition of child labour and freedom of slaves. One of them is the Bachpan Bachao Andolan which operates in India. There are other organisations which fight for Dalit rights, many of them based in the UK.
For more information on the types of challenges faced by Dalits please visit the Dalit Forum site.
