Child labor is one of the worst curses that can hit a society – and sadly, Pakistan is plagued with innocent, not-so-nurtured and poor children who are forced into child labor every day. If they are working with their will, they are ill-treated and cut of off their basic human rights.
Here are some of the most painful and eye-tearing child labor pictures from across the country. Hold your heart tight.
1. When you can’t feed them at a restaurant, refrain from taking them out
2. Instead of holding a cricket bat, the children are holding shovels and baskets
3. Instead of carrying a school bag, this kid is holding sales which also par about begging
4. Instead of watching TV like a normal child, this kid is watching dead fish which he has to clean
5. Instead of trying to fix his own cycle’s tire, this kid is fixing somebody else’s motorbike
6. Instead of looking up at the sky and wondering how beautiful life is, this girl’s sensitive back aches with pain
7. Instead of sleeping and resting on his fluffy pillow, this little kid is resting on the watermelon he has to sell
8. Instead of eating at a fast food restaurant, this kid is making food to eat for other people
9. Instead of un-boxing his own Bubble Gummer shoes, this kid is polishing other people’s dirty footwear
10. Instead of picking artificial jewelry or clothes for their dolls, these beautiful little girls are picking waste
11. The girl is the rose here, selling her dignity to a car owner
12. There’s nothing to say about this picture, the power speaks for itself
13. Every single time this girl puts all her body into lifting a brick, humanity dies
How long will we let our children suffer at the hands of this economic monstrosity? Will there ever be an end? Raise your voice!
