INDIA: 53% children molested

Posted by Sandra On July - 5 - 2010

Given the shocking number of India’s children facing molestation over 53 per cent of the under-18 population, according to an estimate a strong law for tackling child sexual abuse has been long overdue.

Existing laws dealing with sexual offences do not specifically address sexual abuse of children. Legally, only rape and sodomy can lead to criminal conviction. Anything less than rape amounts to ‘outraging the modesty’ of the victim. The draft Protection of Children from Sexual Assault Bill, 2010, aims at recognising the broad range of sexual abuses which children may be subjected to.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.
