Call to be aware of trafficking

Citizens are unaware of the human rights they are entitled to and buckle to the unseen pressure exerted upon them to ‘voluntarily’ accept acquisition of Aadhaar cards, according to activist Brinda Adige at a session on Human Rights at IGNITORS on Thursday.

She spoke of how young children are trafficked for prostitution, illegal organ trade and skin grafting. The nexus between the various sections within the system and the traffickers has led to human beings becoming the second most trafficked ‘commodity’ in the country, she said. She discussed the realities of sex work and legalization of prostitution in India.
