We Need a LAW AGAINST CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE in India sign now

Elaan is a Kolkata-based NGO that is oriented towards spreading awareness on the issues of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) and Incest; Issues that have until now received scant public attention and concern.

This campaign as its name suggests, aims at drawing the attention of society at large about the gross lack of penal law pertaining to csa in India. As of now, CSA has been brought under the parasol provisions of section 375 (rape) and section 377 (unnatural offences) of the Indian penal code. This in itself is exceedingly insufficient to contend with a problem of this magnitude.

Both of the mentioned sections necessarily have as a pre-requisite, penetration for conviction of the perpetrator. It must be mentioned, that in most cases of CSA, this requisite is not fulfilled and therefore the most heinous perpetrator is acquitted scot-free. However, it would be an anachronism to state that the mental and physical well being of a child is not permanently attenuated. Therefore it is our unequivocal demand that CSA be incorporated as a penal offence within the criminal legislations of India.

We at Elaan are committed to fulfilling this legal void, in the absence of which our society would be forced to face long-suffering ramifications. We call upon each and every responsible and socially aware individual to share with us the burden of this campaign by expressing your support by just a signature.

Your signature forms part of a large social manifestation concerning Child Sexual Abuse and will be a positive step towards achieving our goal.
