CHILD TRAFFICKING

(Syeda Aqsa, Karachi)

Yesterday, I read an article about child trafficking in a magazine. Child trafficking in Pakistan has two major types. First, female children are brought from rural areas of the country to cities where they are engaged as domestic workers, bonded labourers and sex workers. Pakistan is also a transit route for young girls from East Asian countries and Bangladesh, who are sent to the Middle East and they are sexually exploited there.

A number of child trafficking cases were reported from different parts of the country in 2015. These cases point out the sorry state of affairs regarding child protection in the country. In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, police reported 667 of adult and 27 cases of child trafficking until October 2015, whereas 1,415 cases of “crimes against person” were reported in Balochistan by the end of June 2015. The government should take stringent measures to check this social evil in society.
