    Project description

    The business of ‪marriage matching or ‪bride trade (trafficking) is not different from sex ‪trafficking because it treats women as a commodity to be sold to some unknown men and their purpose is not to find lifetime loving partners but to arrange a wife to be treated as a sex object, domestic worker and all-around slave. And the most painful part of the whole bride business is that it is also a new form of child marriage which has emerged in a wide scale. ‪Bride-Trafficking systematically violates‪ women’s ‪human ‪rights including the rights to life and security of persons. It places women in ganger of physical abuse and deprives them of bodily integrity. they are kept in villages or form houses and prevented from leaving or even communicating with their families back home. Their freedom from slavery and abuse is violated as a trafficked bride becomes the slave of the man who “buys” her.
    The young women who are mainly sold off as brides and brought to Haryana-Punjab are being used as sex slave are called “Paro” or “Molki”. It has also been found that theses women are also being used as farm worker and are being sexually abused and resold to other man that again provide a market for trafficking of women. As per the National Crime Record Bureau Report more than 22,000 girl children were kidnapped for marriage in 2012. The 2013 report commissioned by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has reported that the organized trafficking rackets have started operating in North Indian states.
