In his address he said that time has come to start positive parenting and have full vigil on our own children and children under our custodians during duty hours as teacher, ICDS worker or any other community worker, so that we know how safe the children in our families and institutions are. Less number of abuse cases are reported and hence no action is taken against perpetrator. The children of present date are highly vulnerable and soft targets of sexual abuse that ultimately leads them towards drug addiction, Tak added. He said that we should talk to our children regarding possible abuses and look seriously into the matter if our children show behavioural changes.

The trainer of the event advocate Iqra gave detailed introduction of child sexual abuse and data in the country. She said around one lakh child sexual abuses have been reported in country and lakhs of cases go unreported. She gave awareness about POCSO Act and the punishments fixed for offenders under the Act. We should trust in our children and give them full honour as adults are given in families, communities and institutions, she added.

Ms. Rafia Khaki, secretary District legal services Authority Anantnag was the chief guest on the occasion.
