 Child Molestation And Society 

Date of Publish - Wednesday, 20th December 2017


Molestation has gained its most brutal form with child molestation cases that have surfaced recently. Starting from play schools to high schools, in and around one’s neighbourhood quite a considerable number of child molestation has come up. With the increase in the number of such cases, arises the need to study and understand the reasons for child molestation.

DISTORTED FAMILIES can often be a major cause of child molestation. People from distorted families tend to develop a nasty mentality which strengthens on seeing children who come from a well-to-do family and it is from this jealousy that few people take part in this heinous crime.

Molesting a child is often considered to be a disease among a few people who indulge in this crime. Thus, proper rehabilitation of such people with severe punishments often recommended. Studies have proven a child, who has once been sexually assaulted or molested at a very tender age never gets over this trauma in her/his life. Thus, this is a more brutal form of offence where a child is denied the most basic freedom, “freedom from sexual harassment”. Now, the question that arises is, “how can child molestation be stopped or avoided?” Of course, when it comes to a child, society is incapable of blaming the victim for her clothes/ behaviour and other superficial issues. Thus, locating the very root of the problem and aiming towards the end of it has become very difficult.

Recently, a case of a 4-year child being molested by the PT teacher in a famous school in Kolkata had surfaced. The mental agony of both the child and her parents was the most dreadful sight one can think of. If we go back to the times when we were of the same age (19 years back for me), could we ever think of being harassed by our teachers or even the older male members of our family? Nowadays, children need to learn about the “good and the bad touch” in order to ensure safety among them. The problem of child molestation has become such a deep-rooted problem in our society that identifying it and taking preventive measures is gradually becoming difficult. Children, as we all know are our future, and if the proper steps are not taken against molesters, this future might start to fade away.
