The World Nonviolence Organization, Free Muslim, affiliated with the Imam al-Shirazi International Foundation in Washington DC issued a statement on the World Day Against Child Labor. 

The organization said in the statement, “All the laws and divine religions have recognized the need to take care of the upbringing of children and to care for their rights, entrusting those obligations to parents first and the authorities second and societies third, given the sensitivity of children and their exceptional situations that call for special care and adequate attention, away from all considerations such as gender or color. As everyone knows, the child is a highly sensitive link in the form of training between the present and the future, and adults must ensure that the child is brought up in a healthy environment, and has a great deal of reassurance, peace and the necessities of a decent life.”

The statement added, “However, with great regret, many societies witness a deliberate neglect of the standards and conditions of child development, not limited to compelling children to work and assuming responsibilities that are not commensurate with their age and ability. Some authorities of third world countries have abandoned their duties regarding this matter, forcing them into industrial and agricultural labor, which according to international laws is a flagrant violation of the rights of the child.”

On the occasion of the World Day Against Child Labor, Free Muslim called on the international community to work hard to address this phenomenon and oblige all employers not to subject children to work under any circumstances.
