Nepalese girls easy victims of trafficking to India for brothels

Thursday - July 12, 2018 8:59 pm , Category : LIFESTYLE

WTN- Human trafficking is a heinous crime but it exists very prominently in our society. It is an internationally operated cartel, well organized and meticulously managed by efficient hands who most of the time manage to dodge the police.

 These people who deal in this trade are well connected with the bigwigs in a different stratum of society and they are therefore not easily held. This abets the crime and ensures its smooth operation. Young girls as young as 13 or 14 years old are caught and induced into the flesh trade.

Trafficking finds more traction in poorer countries because money is a big lure and even small money can get the girls and their families in the trap. This is why countries like Nepal and Bangladesh are easy targets. Lack of social security, poverty, illiteracy, and corruption leave these girls vulnerable and prone to different kinds of physical and mental abuses given the social group they belong to and the jobs they do.

Such girls are easily targeted by pimps and middlemen, who sell them big dreams and deceive them into flesh trade.
 In India too the situation is not much better. Poor girls from the North East, Bengal and even Odisha are packed off to Mumbai or Delhi where they are imprisoned for life in the brothels. Nepalese girls, for their fair skin and physique, are in big demand in the red light areas and since they are not well versed in the languages of India, they feel lost and confused and can be easily manipulated.

They fail to explain themselves or even understand what deals are being finalized. They can’t go back to their country, which is far and they don’t have the money or temerity to escape. Back home they are not welcome.

Even their parents abandon them. Once they are here in the grip of the brothel owners, they are bound by fate to lead a horrid life trapped in the stinky confines. Most of these girls don’t even cross their teens. The abominable conditions leading to disease and malnutrition don’t allow them to live long.

Transfer of such huge posse of girls across the border must not be unknown to the police and the officers at the borders, but big money changes hands and the trafficking is hushed-up, which is why the business runs unabated.

Trafficking is the gross violation of human rights and trafficking of minors is still greater a crime which must be dealt with stringently. India has become a dubious transit point for international traffickers and home to millions of children and young women forced into prostitution or other forms of abuse and slavery.

 Corruption and greed are so ingrained in the Indian psyche that it is very hard to remove this blot. This needs a herculean and concerted effort by all stakeholders including NGOs, police, politicos, officials and the general public.
Unless such an effort is sustained and monitored closely and the main culprits of such trade put behind the bars, we cannot ensure a safe society for our girls. The government must take a pro-active stance and promulgate stricter laws to ensure that sell and purchase of young girls are rooted out from the country.
