The Bharat Yatra is a clarion call to Make India Safe for its children. The sexual abuse and exploitation of children has grown to alarming proportions, and must be totally prevented at any cost, before more children lose their childhood to this repulsive and intolerable crime. The trafficking of children involves buying and selling them illegally for the purpose of their exploitation, and unless this crime is controlled, children will continue to lead extremely compromised and unsafe childhoods. Led by Nobel Peace Laureate Mr. Kailash Satyarthi, the Satyarthi Movement and the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation (KSCF) has set into motion a range of local, regional and global activities to build vast and sustainable support for the world’s largest youth-led mobilisation for all children in need of care and protection. The Bharat Yatra is an effort to mobilise urgent action on these terrible crimes against children.
A child who is raped has multiple perpetrators: the rapist and all of us who keep quiet and allow it to happen. Stand up, speak out, join the Bharat Yatra to #MakeIndiaSafe and end child sexual abuse and trafficking on 22nd September in Guwahati.
The Bharat Yatra, led by Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi reached Hyderabad in Telangana on the eleventh day of the 35-day long march across India.
Mr. Satyarthi’s Yatra was also joined by numerous faith leaders like Shri. Hari Kishan and Shri.Vithal Rao- Aarya Samaj, Ms. B.K Rajni-Brahama Kumari, Brother Varghese and Maulana Agha Mujahid Hussain in Hyderabad, who committed to ensure that those following them would participate in the Yatra, and strive to #MakeIndiaSafe for our children.
