India’s government slammed again on child sex abuse

Posted by robertpriddy on February 7, 2013

BBC-India_child_sex_abuse It becomes ever clearer and clearer to the world that India’s government is failing its populace on any number of human rights issues. Now, a Human Right Watch has released a most damning report on child victims of sexual abuse in India, earmarking the Government for its lacking system and failing measures to investigate, report and deal with these very widespread cases. It accuses the Indian government for failing to tackle child sex abuse in homes, schools and children’s homes.

Is it any wonder, therefore, that successive Indian governments have totally ignored all reports on Sathya Sai Baba’s widely testified and extensive sexual misconduct and abuses with children and young males and various attempts to bring him to justice. When the flood of testimonies was at its highest, however, Sai Baba’s long-term devotees – former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and former High Chief Justice P.N- Bhagwati – wrote an infamous tract in which they exonerated Sai Baba from all guilt and refuted the allegations, but without making the slightest investigation (which was proven by B. Premanand’s campaign to get them to state their basis for the tract using the Freedom of Information Act). Prior to all that, as is well-known, the Government of Narasimha Rao (with Home Minister S.B. Chavan as devotee activist) quashed the CBI investigation into the infamous police murders in June 1993 in Sai Baba’s apartment before it was ready to publish its findings. Not only that, successive Prime Ministers, including Manmohan Singh, have been led by Sai Baba devotees who have cover up for him and held speeches in his presence praising, adulating and generally endorsing this bogus claimant to be the Creator of the Universe (and much more besides!)

The BBC home page has an article on this issue, from which the following excerpt comes:-

Excerpt of BBC report on Child sex abuse in India….
The 2007 Government study is available – click on this page
In the BBC World news programme today (7-02-2013), presenter David Eaves interviewed the human rights expert Bharti Ali, Director HAQ Centre for Human Rights, as follows:-
David Eaves: “Do you feel the spotlight falls fair and square on the government in its inability to deal with this?”

Bharti Ali: To a large extent the government is responsible for at least having the system in place and implementing the legislation it creates…  one issue which is contentious is about reporting. We have very, very little reporting in India on sexual abuse. The law that exists for children at least provides for mandatory reporting. ” and “There is a huge area which we have not looked at, which is investigation. Our investigation continues to be very, very poor. When the law says you have to bring in women public officers we do not know whether (they) are trained to investigate into criminal cases. So it is an area which will have to be strengthened.”
