Because Your Opinion Matters
Child abuse is the physical or psychological maltreatment of a child, that can be distinguished in various categories like physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect and worst of all; the sexual abuse. Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) can be explained as physical or mental violation of a child with sexual intent, usually by a person who is in a position of trust or power.
It has said that “children are a gift of lord; they are a reward from him”!!
Parents, teachers and others in the community have a vital role to protect children from sexual exploitation and abuse. Children are the country's greatest human resource and a measure of the country's social progress lies in the wellbeing of its children: that they are healthy, educated, safe, and happy and have access to life opportunities. It is our duty that Child Sexual Abuse should be combated as early as possible. This will help India to grow and to shine brighter.
In a shocking revelation, a Government commissioned survey has found that more than 53% of Indian children are subjected to sexual abuse / assault. Majority of these cases were perpetrated by someone known to the child or in a position of trust and responsibility.
Sexually abused children suffer from more psychological symptoms than normal children. The risk of harm is greater if the abuser is a relative, if the abuse involves intercourse or attempted intercourse, or if threats or force are used. It affects the whole life of the child and they can’t even forget these unfortunate moments ever.
We need to be aware of such crimes so that we can take necessary steps to stop it from root level. We cannot blame our government for all the mishappenings in our society. Sometimes we need to come in front to take necessary or required actions to control the situation.
