Why child protection is important ?

In India, crime against children is a pressing issue and growing every year. In 2007, the Ministry of Women and Child Development (MWCD) released a study report on child abuse. The report discusses incidence of child abuse nationwide. It is estimated that 150 million girls and 73 million boys under 18 have been subjected to forced sexual intercourse or other forms of sexual violence. The study found that 69%(~325 million) of children reported to have been physically abused. According to a Campaign Against Child Labour (CAC) study, India has 1,26,66,377 child labourers out of 471 million child population, cruel of all 40% of prostitutes are children, and there is a growing demand for young girls in the industry. There have been many cases where children just disappear overnight, as many as one every eight minutes, according to the National Crime Records Bureau. Children are taken from their homes to be bought and sold in the market. In India, there is a large number of children trafficked for various reasons such as labour, begging, and sexual exploitation. Because of the nature of this crime; it is hard to track; therefore making it impossible to have exact figures regarding this issue.
