No more children trained for Mafia

In Mumbai India, doctors are paid to chop off the healthy arms and legs off hundreds of young children, scores of others have been blinded. The mafia gangs also pour acid on to the children’s bodies, leaving them with suppurating wounds. Crippled children generate more money as tourists sympathize with the children.

This practice was vaguely portrayed in the movie Slumdog Millionaire. Yet the situation is far worse that what was depicted in the movie.

"Complaints to the police are pointless. With the beggar mafia making more than £20 million a year in Mumbai alone, corrupt officers ensure that the trade thrives. According to official figures, as many as 44,000 children fall into the clutches of the beggar mafia in India each year and of these, hundreds are deliberately mutilated.

However, some charities say that the figure could be as high as a million. Most of the victims are under ten. ‘They are taught the most appropriate place to beg, the kind of people one should approach, and the kind of mannerisms that would make people sympathize,’ says Mufti Imran, a researcher with Save the Children"

Not all the ‘disappeared’ children are maimed or turned into beggars. But all face a truly grim future. According to human rights groups, some are forced into child pornography and used as sex slaves. Others are killed and have their organs sold to wealthy Indians.

Obviously this practice is savage and cruel, yet we have made it 'acceptable' by allowing a capitalistic system to exist. How is anyone able to say capitalism is acceptable when this is the direct consequence?

Living in self-interest, we are only concerned for our own well being and that of our families. So the root of the problem is us who have money, and in us not standing up to stop it, we are equally responsible as those who perform these acts of violence.

How would you feel if your limbs were amputated as a child so you could make money for gangs? Many will say 'oh its just the way the system works, you can't change it'. That is seditious and unacceptable. The solution is simple, an Equal Money System would stop all abuse and no longer allow such horrifying practices to continue.

Are we aware of these atrocities going on in our world? Multitudes of other disgraceful torture is currently happening that is not seen or reported in our world because of the acceptance of capitalism. This capitalist system is the destroyer of life. How much suffering will we allow before we say Enough already! Stand up and support a dignified life for all. Equal Money for All.
