Eliminate Child Labor Following Brutal Murder of Teen Maid

Target: Ram Nath Kovind, President of India’s Parliament

Goal: Enact regulations that protect the rights of child laborers.

A teenage maid in India was strangled, mutilated, and left in a sewage drain, all for demanding pay that was owed to her. This sixteen-year-old maid hadn’t been paid for a year. When she demanded compensation, she was murdered. India has no laws that would’ve protected her and her rights. This must change immediately.

This young girl’s horrific fate sheds light on the horrible human trafficking and child abuse still rampant in India. An anti-trafficking bill sits stalled in parliament. Meanwhile, no laws regulate companies that employ young, impoverished children. Children are forced to work long hours with little to no pay.

With over 60 percent of victims of human trafficking being children, something must be done immediately to save their lives. Sign the petition to demand the government of India act on anti-trafficking laws and regulations.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Kovind,

A sixteen-year-old girl in your country was forced to work as a maid. When she demanded pay that was rightfully hers, she was strangled, cut apart, and left abandoned in a sewage drain. Such a brutal fate is one many child workers, not protected by your government, faces.

While your government is currently working on anti-trafficking measures, more must be done to pass and strengthen these laws and regulations so that no child has to face abuse or even death for trying to earn a living.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. I demand justice for the teenage maid in India that was strangled, mutilated, and left in a sewage drain.

  2. Ban all product from India until the government chancing the law to protect the low-paid employees.

    child labor is ageist and its wrong to hire children to be working as slaves in labor. children should be in school not be slaves to labor. labor is for adutls only. if adolescents want to work after school, its their choice. ban child slavery worldwide. replace children with adults for labor.
