Traffic problems
Trafficking of women is on rise
16/11/2006

Despite worshipping the ‘Sacred Feminine’ with pomp and religious fervors, India ironically treats them inhumanly in real lives. It has been noted that India has been one of the largest sources, transit and destination of the immoral trafficking of hapless women and children in the world. This trade is considered to be the third largest profitable organised crime, after arms and drug trafficking. A United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) report suggests that roughly, the number of trafficked people in India ranges from two to three million annually. Given long and porous borders, thousands of women are trafficked from neighbouring Nepal and Bangladesh, and most of them end up in brothels. Government estimates that about 200 million people migrate annually within the country, most of them seeking employment. But the horrifying aspect of this data is revealed when inter-state trafficking of young girls is considered. The drought infested regions of southern India (especially Andhra Pradesh, Assam & Orissa) are increasingly emerging as the ‘source region’ of internal traffic. And the northern states of Punjab & Haryana suffering the effects of ‘female foeticide’ have fuelled such demand.

This dimension of immoral traffic reflects substantially that ‘medievalism’ still exists and is thriving in India. Raising the women to pantheon, then lives only on the realm of hypocrisy.
