Innocent souls to do labour
Child labour or Child Slavery again is a very sensitive topic to discuss. But why not? We of course discuss topics like politics or so in our gossip sessions then why not child slavery?
Have you ever come to think of from where did child slavery or child labour even begin?
Why do these kids have none to take care of them? Or Why do they have to work from such a tender age?
Let’s try to find out.
I’d start my topic by quoting from Kailash Satyarthi ji,
“Child slavery is a crime against humanity. Humanity itself is at stake here. A lot of work still remains, but I will see the end of child labor in my lifetime.”
Thus, it is imperative for the prosperity of our society that such heinous crime be stopped.
And it is the duty of all of us to help such anti-child slavery activists in their endeavour to stop this widespread problem.
What are the reasons that lead to Child Labour or Child Slavery?
Out of many reasons that lead to child labour or child slavery, here are a few.
The first reason could be Financial Crisis.
Due to unemployment some people face extreme poverty with nothing to eat and drink.
Being from a backward class with minimum education and having no skills they don’t easily get jobs.
They are then forced to push their children into labour or slavery to survive.
These innocent souls carry a hell lot of responsibilities on their shoulders from such a tender age.
The second reason one might come to think of is Orphans who are forced into labour.
There are many orphans in India and especially in war torn countries like Syria, Iraq, Yemen among many, who are forsaken by their relatives.
These little souls have no one to take care of them, no one to provide them with education hence they are forced to work for their livelihood.
Yet again, shame on humanity.
What can we do to stop child slavery or child labour? or
How can we stop child labour or child slavery?
We may think what can we do in this issue, but there’s surely a lot of things one can do.
Here are a few things to help prevent child labour or child slavery.
We might not completely end child labour or child slavery, but we surely can take a step forward to stop it.
Whenever you see a child working in some hotel or restaurant, please try to report it to any NGO working for children.
Children are a gift from god, they are the future of our generation.
And what are we doing with our future?
Pushing them into labour?
How can we expect the future of our country to be bright by forcing these innocent souls into labour?
We and only we are responsible for a scary future if these innocent souls aren’t rescued.
We don’t hold any rights to deprive them of education and push them into labour or slavery.
I’d conclude my topic by quoting from an Islamic revolutionary leader.
Imam Hussain ibn Ali said :
“Those who are silent when others are oppressed are guilty of oppression themselves.”
Let’s not be a part of this oppression and join hands against child labour.
