Bengaluru: With the Monsoon Session of the Parliament beginning next Wednesday, Nobel Peace laureate and renowned child rights activist
Kailash Satyarthi called on parliamentarians to introduce the anti-trafficking bill without further delay.

Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, he said that no further delay should occur in passing the bill as there is a sense of urgency over ensuring that the perpetrators are brought before the law with stringent punishment.

Earlier during the day, Mr Satyarthi received a warm welcome from thousands of students, alumni members, faculty and administrators of Christ (Deemed to be University) as he delivered the Golden Jubilee Address at the college auditorium.

Addressing the students, he urged them to be vigilant and be active voices against any form of child abuse and trafficking. “The globalisation of information, production, economy and technology has brought unprecedented progress in this era but has also created a serious deficit of truth, trust and tolerance amongst us.

Therefore, a globalisation of compassion is essential now to save humanity,” he
said. Soon after his address, the institute also decided to form a thinking society titled Satyarthi Vichar Manch to encourage student thinkers to voice their ideas to build a safer society for all.
