If children are not safe, India isn’t either: Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi

Prime News, National, Thiruvananthapuram, September 12:-  Nobel laureate and social activist Kailash Satyarthi on Tuesday said that no matter how rich India’s culture is or how large the democracy is, if the children of the country are not safe, the nation is not either.

Satyarthi’s statement came in the light of the recent gruesome killing of the seven-year-old student at the Ryan International School, after which a bus conductor was nabbed for killing the child.

“We are the oldest and the greatest culture, one of the greatest cultures of the world. Definitely, we are the largest democracy of the world. But if the children in India are in danger, India is in danger; if our children are not safe, India is not safe,” Satyarthi said, while addressing school students here.

He said that he wouldn’t stop fighting for the rights of the children till the time, the children of the nation are safe and are not raped or abused.
