GUWAHATI, Sept 23 - Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi today said children are now �not safe anywhere� in the country, while batting for a rigorous law against human trafficking, including child trafficking.

�One of the major demands of �Bharat Yatra� campaign is that Parliament must pass a stringent law against human trafficking, including child trafficking,� Satyarthi said, flagging off the Meghalaya lap of the campaign.

He asserted that he has declared a war against crimes like rape, sexual abuse and child trafficking, and hoped the �Bharat Yatra� campaign will make India safe again for children.

�I refuse to accept that the innocence, smiles and freedom of our children can keep getting stripped and raped. These are not ordinary crimes. This is a moral epidemic haunting our nation.

�Our children are not safe either in homes, schools or neighbourhood or anywhere, and the perpetrators (of such crimes) roam freely. We just cannot wait and watch,� Satyarthi said.

He was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, along with Pakistan�s Malala Yousafzai.

Hailing Satyarthi�s campaign, Meghalaya Minister of Sports and Youth Affairs Zenith M Sangma said that the State Government will leave no stone unturned to create a child-friendly society. Satyarthi had begun his 35-day-long nation-wide �Bharat Yatra� march on September 11. The 11,000-km yatra will travel through 22 States, culminating in New Delhi on October 16. � PTI
