ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 14th Jan, 2019 ) :Children employed in carpet weaving in Thar were denied education and deprived of normal healthy childhood with danger of developing physical abnormality said Nasreen Azhar former chairperson of NCSW .

Talking to APP here on Monday , she said that Human Rights Commission of Pakistan is making efforts to provide the basic education facility close to place work and reducing working hours.

She said that HRCP team visited in Thar village Katlohi Kalan and found out about thirty looms and nearly one hundred of whom were child workers.

Despite a steady decline in child labour, progress is far too slow. At current rates, more than 100 million children will still be trapped in child labour by 2020.

The continuing persistence of child labour poses a threat to national economies and has severe negative short and long term consequences for the fulfillment of children's rights guaranteed by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) including denial of education and frequent exposure to violence.

She further added that the problem of child labour in the carpet weaving industry has to be viewed in the overall socio-economic milieu and economic pressures, injustice, exploitation unemployment main reasons could only be resolve through education, she further added.
