For many Pakistani Muslims, visiting a shrine and donating cash to beggars go hand in hand. however their generosity has inspired the creation of a “begging mafia” that forces thousands of kids into a lifetime of slavery.
Shrines dedicated to holy men are dotted across most cities and cities in Pakistan. within the folks Islam of the region, they’re considered saints, and may attract vast numbers of worshippers, desperate to pray for his or her blessings.
The shrines have forever been a magnet for beggars, particularly kids, as several of the pilgrims believe giving cash to the poor can increase the prospect of their prayers being detected.
The result? kids are being kidnaped and listed between solicitation gangs, says soldier, founding father of the Roshni Helpline charity.
“In 2010, 3,000 kids went missing in urban center alone,” says Ali.
“Many of those kids are going to be emotional around shrines in Pakistan. they’re going to have their heads whiskerless. they’re going to be tattooed. they’re going to be created unrecognisable to their folks.
“The culture of solicitation at shrines is thus rife that the police can seldom intervene or raise kids however they ought to a shrine.”
