NEW DELHI — Faith leaders of different communities will join forces with Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi in a year-long campaign against child sexual abuse and trafficking.

A series of events will be held as part of the 'Surakshet Bachpan Surakshet Bharat' (Safe Childhood-Safe India) campaign across the country beginning in August, an official of the Kailash Satyarthi Children's Foundation said.

"Children are always the worst victims of all forms of violence. Sexual abuse is among the gravest and is growing at an alarming rate. It is the moral obligation of all faith leaders to help break this silence," Satyarthi said.

A roundtable hosted by Satyarthi saw the participation of Sufi Ajmal Nizami of the Nizamuddin Dargah, Syed Aziz of the Ahmadiyya community, Archbishop Samuel P. Prakash of the Anglican Church of India and Nilakshi Rajkhowa of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is, among others.

The foundation said the religious leaders have been invited to join as they have the allegiance of millions and their influence can effectively contribute to ending violence against children.
