Indian society needs to educate its masses against the monstrous exploitations they face. I really don’t think they can count on Governments or police to protect them. Before encountering one in 2000 I never knew how powerful they are and how tightly knit their network is all over the country.
Every year one racket is busted, at least one with nation-wide network, So massive is their network that if and when their victims escape they start harassing that person right in her home, along with her family members, forcing her to return from where she escaped. The society plays the role of idiot who thinks if his neighbour’s house is burning it’s not his concern. He will react when the flame reaches his home, or may be… the flame won’t reach his home at all!
Now they have opened their branches overseas, recently a woman from Kerala was caught supplying women to Middle East, she collects them from India, Malayasia and other poverty stricken countries and supplies them to Middle East and some other countries.
She even sometimes extorts money from the family members of the trafficked women in pretext of making arrangement of their returning to India after they have lost their papers there! Is not it a shame that such things go on and on and on?
Government and police must be happy with their share of their loot, but what about the rest of the society? Are they too gloating on the money they make by selling off their daughters, sisters and wives? I guess not!
So its high time that they should spread the education, the poaching ground of this mucks of society is working class, where money is too little and people are innocent. These people don’t read newspapers, the only medium that regularly writes about and against these rackets. To reach them one will have to go through visual media, movies- after all, these dumb movies create the scenario that princes marry flower girls and live happily ever after, or one lands in USA without a penny in pocket and returns a millionaire.
Small, effective advertisements targeting these girls, sharing the true stories of little girls who entered the hut made of candy and ended up in a witch’s claw should be broadcasted regularly. The NGO’s that work in these fields can approach the television channels and come to some arrangement.
The way these networks are rising is a shame! True shame! It’s a wonder that why so little people are ashamed of this repulsive business that’s thriving more than any honest business in this country!
