Indian Religious leaders Agree to Fight Slavery


On Thursday, religious leaders agreed to use their power to fight slavery in India…

Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Sikh, and other faiths were represented.  All agreed that this atrocity of millions universally is a “crime against God”.  They would like to see human trafficking eliminated by 2020. Nearly half the slaves in the world live in India. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, one of the leaders, said: “We can make people who enslave realise that what they are doing is a crime against God … Slavery is the worst insult you can give to God. This is where faith leaders and spiritual people can make a big impact in transforming the minds and hearts of people.”
