Slavery Of The Modern World Essay

1834 words - 7 pages

Human trafficking is modern day slavery with twenty thousand prostitutes and two major red- zones in India (“Horrors of India”). Human trafficking sometimes gets ignored and written off as an unimportant agenda that needs to be stopped, because human trafficking should be just as important as new roads in everyone’s agenda. Some people let human trafficking be written off as another country's problem when it is really everyone’s problem to stop slavery. Human trafficking in India is an unhuman business that needs to be stopped, because it is making a profit off sex, demoralizing girls, and is letting a form of modern day slavery happen in our world today.
Human trafficking is a long lasting business that has a long and dark history the world needs to understand in order to help make the world a better place for the victims of prostitution. To change the world for the women who are affected by sex slavery every day, we must understand how prostitution began in the first place. Human trafficking began in India in 1864; the British created and maintained brothels for troops, the girls were paid for by the British military and the military maintained eight brothels that housed more than five hundred prostitutes. Today, there are only two brothels, with Kamathipura being the largest one (“Horrors of India”). The beginnings of human trafficking seem very simple, but it does not take away the damage that this has created and how awful and unmoral this business has been from the beginning. The damage that has been done is unimaginable, and we cannot change the past, we can only change the future. The minimal changes that have been made to protect the women and children that have been kidnapped, tricked, and sold into modern day slavery; “metal bars were added to the windows one hundred and twenty years ago to protect the women and children that work and live in the fourteen cramped lanes that are overlooked by skyscrapers today. The recent prosperity in India has also allowed for millions of women and children to be freed from clutches of sex slavery (Roy). Some of the changes made, like bars on the windows were necessary, while changes like freeing victims was not. Freeing the victims of this modern day slavery has provided hope for a better future.
The history of human trafficking is immoral and shameful; for some it makes them want to make a difference and for others they just look the other way. As times change in India, we as the world have an opportunity to put a stop to this ugly business and change the world for the better (“Horrors of India”). Many organizations have seen this window of opportunity and have used the resources that they have to make a difference in this sex trade organization. Kranti Revolution is one of the few organizations that have stepped up to the plate, to put a stop to this form of modern day slavery. Kranti was founded on the premise that empowering girls in red-light districts can become an agent of social change...
