Please Commit to a Roadmap to Protect Our Children from Sexual Abuse

Every day, 8 children in India are subject to Child Sexual Abuse. This August, my home town Bengaluru saw another child rape. A 3-year-old was sexually abused by a school employee who was supposed to be taking care of her.

This is a risk all our children face all the time. When they go to school, to a hospital and surprisingly almost half the time, from within the family or community. India is home to the largest number of sexually abused children in the world.

Ignoring this threat to our children is inconsistent with our responsibility as adults to protect them. We need to do more. We need to protect our children.

I am a Rajya Sabha MP and I am determined to use all my resources and power to make children safer. I need your help.

Sign my petition and let’s ask PM Modi to make the safety of our children a priority for his government and to commit to a roadmap to protect our children from sexual abuse.

I need lakhs of us to tell the PM how important this is to us. I want to tell him that each and every Indian requests him to take action.

These are our children and it is our responsibility to ensure a safe and positive childhood for them, well protected against abuse. This makes me angry, as it should you. This needs to stop.

It is reprehensible, that 68 years since Independence, no Government so far has made child safety a priority. The NDA Government should take this opportunity to create a Maximum Governance approach for the safety of India’s 400 million children.

Child Sexual Abuse is a form of terrorism against our children. With every second child at risk of abuse, it is time to act and protect India’s 400 million children. Our children deserve better.

You and I cannot fight Child Sexual Abuse alone. We have to come together and raise our voices collectively.

Sign my petition requesting Prime Minister Modi to take the lead and to commit to a strong roadmap to protecting children from sexual abuse. And this needs to happen now.
