Please serious response only.

This question has always bothered me. India is becoming a powerful country and everyone knows about the red light districts where Nepalese girls are sold and made to become prostitutes from very young age.

Why does the government of India turn a blind eye to this rampant crime against underage girls buying and selling?

How can we pressure the indian government to be proactive in this regard?

it's not only innocent Nepali underage girls, it's their own poor underage girls who find themselves in these hell on earth. On top of that, India, especially Indian politicians, has very little regard to Nepal or Nepalese people.

Nepal being a very small country compared to India and India being the second largest populated country in the world, it is in the best interest of Nepal to nullify the visa free travel between Nepal and India. While hardworking Nepalese go to India to work, even as security guards (which Indian are so fun to sneer Nepalese about), Indian merchants are taking over the Nepalese business in Nepal and on top of that lots of poorest of poor people from India have found a save haven in Nepal, especially Kathmandu, who are seen all over the streets near major temples in Kathmandu. (I was surprised to see so many Indian looking beggars on the side of the road in Hanuman Dhoka last Saturday on Maghe Sangranti)

Indian government is all about big talks and competing internationally but when it comes to stopping basic human rights abuse, they let it happen in daylight freely in the red light districts. We need to put international pressure to make them do the right thing. Otherwise their law is a joke.

@neuro, when some indians or anyone come to me and say India is next super power or anything I just LOL to them. 10% india is what they try to show to world and 90% is sh!t. There is no basic human rights, no law, no justice. Criminal get bail again and again. Justice system is whole joke. Mass molestation occurs in public. Politicians are corrupt as hell. India is sht nation, thats why so many educated indians still live outside nation.what to expect from them.

I think the problem is in the mindset. We have to look at this issue very deeply, not only from a political view point. I think that is the problem. Our society looks at every problem from the political point of view only. In other words, we care too much about others point of view. And, our politicians are master in exploiting this. To bring change, we also need to look at things from a social perspective. We need to decide what kind of society that we want to live in, and work together towards achieving that. It will require a lot of hard work from everyone in the society. We will have to talk about tough issues, and find solutions. Economy is changing, it is not mostly farming anymore. The society will have to make room for new ideas. If we are wiling to accept challenges as a society, then I see a very beautiful future in Nepal and India.

This post has such a high view number!

Harkey, I was expecting your comment has specific preskriptions as you normally would write on other questions, I, instead found broader suggestions that can be relevant to any societal problem, including underage girl trafficking.

To answer the op's concern or question, I would say our government should take the required action instead of expecting India to be doing something. Everyone knows more Indians are in brothels than Nepali. Let us not expect a lot from India.

After watching few secretly filmed brothel videos few months ago, I was/am of the impression that number of young women/girls working in those places is not a lot. Perhaps there are places little far, and little hidden from the well-known places where most of the people gather to conduct trade. I think number of young girls has genuinely decreased compared with the situation few years ago, mainly due to girls being in school for longer years, increased awareness among parents, and decreased trafficking of underage girls due to fear of harsh penalty. (I recall reading few news pieces of some judges in district courts giving up to 40/50 years of prison sentences to child traffickers).

I think Nepal government's major focus should be to make it mandatory for everybody to attend schools up to grade 10, or until the age of 16, whichever comes first. Girls can be given monetary incentives or allowance for attending school beyond 8th grade and until 12th grade. There is/should be enough money with government to implement it. It will have immense positive impact not only by preparing a future workforce that is educated, but also adult women who can defend themself and have enough courage to say no to anything they do not wish to do. Equally important will be to warn and punish the parents who have stopped sending theirs children until they reach the age of 16. Elected local government officials can be the important part of mechanism to implement the above mentioned measures. Around the country many local elected officials have set expamples during the pandemics by keeping records of infected people and by strictly forbidding the spread of virus in their jurisfiction with the help of self-set up mechanism.

Personally I am of the view that government or anybody for that matter should not worry about the trade that takes place between adults. All the focus has to be on making sure girls are in the school until 16 years of age.
