Study on Child Abuse: India 2007

Child abuse is shrouded in secrecy and there is a conspiracy of silence around the entire subject. In fact
There is a well entrenched belief that there is no child abuse in India and certainly there is no sexual abuse
in the country. Further, certain kinds of traditional practices that are accepted across the country, knowingly
or un-knowingly amount to child abuse. Existing socio-economic conditions also render some children
vulnerable and more at risk to abuse, exploitation and neglect. It is about time that we recognize this and
take remedial measures. Lack of empirical evidence and qualitative information on the dimensions of child
abuse and neglect makes it difficult to address the issue in a comprehensive manner.
