Slavery - a shameful truth
Therefore, United Nation’s General Assembly marks December 2nd as “International Day for abolition of Slavery” .
Primarily there are three causes responsible for this unfair practice .
(1) Enticement for money – Money is the fuel to run life and lust for wealth which also buys power makes some resort to this inhuman trade .
(2) Putrescent praxis - We are so much addicted to catastrophic traditions that never want to change the way as it is . For example torturing a bride to work 20 hours a day if she does not bring enough dowry .
(3) Selfishness or fearfulness - Most of the time onlookers do not bother to go against the slaver considering that is none of their business or they are afraid to the slave traders .
The truth is we can not blame one person . The whole society and system should take responsibility to go against it . Whether it is at home , in our neighborhood , security or other government organizations , even on social media . Collective negation should come out . When stakeholders , powerful person, institutions take step that will activate slaves to open their mouth and sole third parties dare to stop and finish this heinous convention . In reality number of these perpetrators are minimal but lack of will power of the majority boosts their rancorous power . Sometimes ego , petty politics and narrow mentality also fosters their illegitimate toughness .
We should ask ourselves are we part of this syndrome either ourselves or in our vicinity ?Do we have courage to raise our voice ?
If you have then please write about it .
