BACHA BAZI
When Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Radhika Coomaraswamy was asked to comment on the attitude of bacha bazi in Afghanistan her instant reply was “Let’s not talk about it.”
Literally translated, bacha bazi means “playing with kids,” and is slang for sexual slavery and child prostitution that thrives across Afghanistan and certain parts of Pakistan. Prepubescent boys are sold to wealthy and powerful patrons for entertainment and illicit sex. Women are not allowed to dance in public, and so the boys are made to perform feminine gestures and acts.
Beardless and effeminate boys are highly sought after by patrons, often powerful merchants or warlords who can indulge with impunity. Large halls are used as venues for the parties, where the boys dance clad in women’s clothing with bells tied to their feet and a scarf wrapped around their face as they parade for hours. The parties also provide an opportunity for buying and selling. Once the party concludes the boys are sold to the highest bidder or shared for sex. In return they are given small tokens of money and food.

The USA is the capital of the world slave trade and thousands of children go missing in the USA every year. Many of the slaves in the MIddle East, be they boys, girls or women are likely to have come from the USA.

And you know this because . . ?
Do you have information likely to be of assistance to the police, or anti-slavery campaigners? Please help!

Why are they likely to have come from America? What makes you say that?

Thousands of people go missing in the UK every year as well. Perhaps they too are dancing in Islam. Anyway, how was your post relevant to the original one other than apologising for Afghani pervs by suggestin others are at it as well? Does that make it better?
Perhaps a tut, tut would have been more relevant and useful. You know, let the little people know that you actually do care about women and children. That would nice.
