The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most progressive blueprint for advancing women’s and girls’ rights, was adopted in 1995 during the World Conference on Women in Beijing. The UN General Assembly declared the 11th of October as International Day of the Girl Child on the 19th of December 2011.

Since then, it has been recognized as the most advanced and progressive blueprint ever for women’s and girls’ rights. In December 2011, the UN General Assembly declared the 11th of October to be International Day of the Girl Child. It was primarily established to focus on the challenges that girls face daily around the world and to empower their young minds.

Laws for Girl Rights Protection in India

Specific laws have been enacted to address issues affecting women and girls, such as dowry harassment (1961), the practice of sati (1987), female foeticide (1994), domestic violence (2005), and workplace sexual harassment (2013). Other laws protecting children’s rights generally emphasize girls’ equal status and protection, such as trafficking (1956), the right to education (2002 amendment to the Constitution and 2009 act), child labor (1986), juvenile justice (2000), child marriage prohibition (2006), and protection from sexual offenses (2012).

Current Scenario of Girl Child Safety in India

Courts have stepped in where governments have been slow to act. Sexual intercourse with a minor wife, for example, was declared an offense by the Supreme Court in 2017. Nonetheless, there are significant gaps in the application of these laws and principles to benefit all girl children and young women. They have been the targets of violence and discrimination since their birth. Female foeticide remains dangerously common in India.

Girls are also still victims of the illegal practice of child marriage. According to UNICEF’s pre-pandemic estimates, at least 1.5 million girls under the age of 18 marry in India each year, making it the country with the most child brides – accounting for one-third of the global total.

Girls Education in India

Girls in India have less access to education as well. According to the Right to Education Forum’s ten-year status report released in 2020, girls are twice as likely as boys to have less than four years of schooling. In urban areas, the gross attendance rate for girls in higher secondary school is 58, while in rural areas it is 75. Education has a direct impact on girls’ ability to seek formal employment and achieve economic independence, which is critical for realizing their rights and liberties. 

Almighty God Kabir Is the Real Protector

Human Rights protection is a fundamental need of society. These days the rights of the people are not being protected by the governments of the nations. Independent bodies are also failing in safeguarding people’s fundamental rights. Only omnipotent God Kabir (Kabir Parmeshvar) can protect the rights of all the citizens. He is our real protector. The Saviour, Liberator, and Protector of all souls have arrived on Earth. All we need to do is identify Him and take His refuge as soon as possible. 

Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj Can Ensure Girl Rights Protection 

Jagatguru Tatvdarshi Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj is the only enlightened Saint in the entire Universe. The refuge of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj can ensure Girl Rights Protection not only in India but in the entire World. One just needs to take Naam Initiation (Naam Diksha) from Him and start doing true worship of Almighty God Kabir based on the holy scriptures of all the religions. Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj has taught the world via His nectar speeches that there is no difference between a Girl Child and a Boy Child. Children are obtained by the blessings of God, we should treat them as sons and daughters of the Creator God.
