Global Slavery Index: Report shames India, China, Pakistan

A report claiming to be the most comprehensive look at global slavery says 30 million people are living as slaves around the world.

The Global Slavery Index, published by the Australia-based Walk Free Foundation, lists India as the country with by far the most slaves, with an estimated nearly 14 million, followed by China (2.9 million) and Pakistan (2.1 million).

The top 10 countries on its list of shame accounted for more than three quarters of the 29.8 million people living in slavery, with Nigeria, Ethiopia, Russia, Thailand, Democratic Republic of Congo, Myanmar and Bangladesh completing the list.

    Appreciate CNN Freedom Project. Was shocked to be aware of such cruelty towards humans and children. As an overseas Pakistani resolve to do whatever i can in Pakistan and even more. Resolve to stand up for the sake of these children, who are not any different from our own.
    Request all readers to work towards protecting the weak, protect them from exploitation. Letting this happen under our noses and just being a slient spectator seems a crime itself. Bravo CNN for opening up our eyes to this tragedy.

      The causes of slavery were unknown to you Mr. " ..overseas Pakistani" I have known this since I was born in Pakistan. And let us not forget the US role in wasting the worlds resources such as oil and gas. The clothing industry and others. This is not a Pakistan problem this is a global problem and the US has to take responsibility for supporting government after government simply for its own good.

      WE had servants who were younger then me and I was 11. Whole families living in our house and the men folk not allowing there children to learn in fear that they would then leave them and the parents would have no source of income.

    The report about should also take into account the practice of engaging army and police persons of the lower rank as domestic help or virtual servants in the household of high ranking officers . It is humiliating and a form of modern day slavery at its worst kind. It cannot be condoned in this age. Even retired officers are provided this kinf of privilege in Nepal. Such persons are about 10,000 ,an estimate. Please include this practice as well in your report.

    Therefore, choose a diet after careful planning and consultation with doctor. Did you know that most of the supplement market isn't even approved by the FDA.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
