Increases in child labour

Increases in child labour

Sir: I would like to bring your attention about child labour which is increasing day in Pakistan.

Different methods are applied to highlight this issue, but it has not controlled yet. With increasing population, child labour is also increasing in Pakistan.

Most of children are working in unhealthy circumstances under the age of child ten. In April 2010 article 25A were inserted via the 18 amendment in Pakistan constitution, “the state shall provide free and compulsory education to all children of the age five to sixteen years in such manner as may be determined by law.” Despite this law, children are still being neglected for getting education and other basic facilities under constitution. Therefore, it is my humble request to the government of Pakistan to take action and save children, because children the future and products of nation.
