In the midst of ongoing, kidnappings of children from various areas across Punjab, Christian’s True Spirit Trust raised voice during a demonstration held against the menace of child abduction. Participants chanted slogans against the scourge and were carrying banners and placards calling for immediate action in order to thwart the bane.
“Protest to stop abduction of children,” read one banner, while the demonstrators urged the Chief Minister of Punjab Shahbaz Sharif to take prompt action in order to impede the perpetrators involved in kidnappings. They urged the CM to mobilize all his resources in order to not only prevent the kidnappings but hook the mafia warily operating in the province.
They said that a continuous surge in the child kidnapping incidents is alarming, even more that the police and law enforcement authorities have been disinclined to tackle the issue. The demonstrators further said that the summer vacations of children are over, parents are apprehensive about whether to send their children to schools.
It is government’s responsibility to safeguard children and provide them fail-safe security especially when a child abduction mafia is running wild. The demonstrators demanded that the abductors and their accomplices should be hooked, and brought to justice. At the same time, they urged all the parents to be vigilant in this regard and keep an eye on their children.
