On Saturday, Politician Kamal Hassan has written to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urges him to ensure that the anti-trafficking bill was taken up to discuss in the winter session of the Parliament.

The Trafficking of Persons (Prevention, Protection, and Rehabilitation) Bill in 2018 was passed by the Lok Sabha in July 2018 and was pending for discussion in the Rajya Sabha, said the Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) Chief Kamal Hassan.

Referring to his recent interaction with survivor groups of human trafficking, he said that they had narrated “tales of deception, physical brutality and mental scar they must live with for their entire life.”

He further said that “India acts as an origination, transit and destination point for this inhuman activity (trafficking)… “I hope that your government presents this bill for discussion in the upcoming session of the Parliament and all parties support the proposed law. Further, the Parliament may suitably address any shortcoming in the bill as highlighted by various political parties before it is finally passed.”

The legislation will offer necessary tools to the Law enforcement agencies to aid such crimes, other than sufficient assistance to the victims that were rescued, and help them to start a new and respectful life, added Mr. Hassan.
