I rescued three and half year old girl from sex mafia-Dr.Sunitha Krishnan

Dr.Sunitha Krishnan is the founder and general secretary of Prajwala, Hyderabad. She works to rescue  women and children who are trapped under  sex mafia. It is embarrassing to know that a three and half year old girl was one among the 12,000 women she rescued from the flesh traders, so far. She was in Calicut; recently to receive an award instituted by MES on behalf of its golden jubilee celebrations.Sunitha interacted with the CNM at MES golden jubilee venue, Govindapuram, in Kozhikode.

She says that in every 10 minutes, one woman is forced to sell herself in India. It` is a shame to all of us.

‘We must fight against trafficking.’

The ‘selling of womanhood’ is an organised crime, well planned and controlled by mafia. Why does a man crave for three and half year old girl? This question should pierce into everyone’s mind-she says.

Organised crimes

She said that many crimes are worked out by keeping women in front of the activity. Most of the crimes are well-planned and organised by mafia. Flesh traders target vulnerable women and girls. This is the face of sex-rackets, everywhere. Once a woman trapped into it, it is very difficult to come out of it. Gradually, these women become brothel keepers and persuade as many as girls into their world. The chain works out like this. In short, victims are criminalised.

“There is no gender discrimination for sex mafia.”

Social stigma

I had many challenging situations during the rescuing operations. Whatever, the mental and physical trauma I have suffered, the most painful is the attitude of people. Rescued women are isolated everywhere. Jobs are denied for them. They have been haunted by unwanted questions and even children are neglected in schools. This sort of social stigma is disappointing in our society. The society should change its attitude.

Solutions

An awareness program is essential to see a change in our society. Boys should be specially educated to respect girls and  women. Women and children must be recognised as the real national asset by everyone.No human being should be humiliated or harassed.

Why is a man craving for three and half year old girl? This question should pierce into everyone’s mind.

Kerala context

We can’t say that Kerala people are educated; instead we should say that Keralites are literate. Otherwise, there had not been many crimes against women in Kerala.

So, real education is pending for Kerala society. State level and national level, well-planned awareness campaign should be implemented to combat the increasing number of sex crimes in India.

Government aid:

The government aid in this regard is minimal .We need great support to move forward in the awareness campaign. Flesh traders work in an organised manner, that too with a wide network. So, need of the hour is to expand the awareness campaigns in each nook and corner of India.
