Satyarthi begins ‘ Bharat Yatra’


Today:- Sep – Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi on Monday commenced his 35-day-long nationwide march , the ‘Bharat Yatra’- India’s biggest agitation against child sexual abuse, rape and human trafficking.
The 11,000-kilometre ‘yatra’ tours 22 states, starting from the coastal city Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu. The journey will be accomplished on October 16 in the national capital.
Earlier while talking to reporters, the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner had said ,”One of the major demands through this campaign is that Parliament passes a stringent law against human trafficking, including child trafficking.”
Asserting that he has declared a war against rape, sexual abuse and child trafficking, Satyarthi had said,”Bharat Yatra, the biggest movement in history will make India safe again for children. I refuse to accept that the innocence, smiles and freedom of our children can keep getting stripped and raped. These are not ordinary crimes. This is a moral epidemic haunting our nation.”
“Our children are not safe either in homes, schools or neighbourhood or anywhere and the perpetrators (of such crimes) roam freely. We just cannot wait and watch,” he had stated.
“If we have to make a ‘New India’, which we aspire and are committed to, then our girls and boys should be safe in their homes, schools and their neighbourhood. ‘New India’ would be one where all children are safe, free and educated, and this is a movement for that,” he had said.
Mr Satyarthi also spoke up on the humanitarian crisis in neighbouring Myanmar, where his fellow Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi has been questioned for her silence on the Rohingya crisis by Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate.
