Child murder cases

I was reading that many cases of child murders are gathering dust as normal legal procedure is being followed in the trial of these cases. I think all cases of child murder should be included in the fast track trial list so that the perpetrators get punished quickly.

If the criminals know that violence against children will be tried in fast track court and punishment will be awarded quickly, they will think twice before committing such crimes.

Children are like angels, and those who do not love children and act unkindly they do not deserve to be treated as human beings.

It is sad that we are living in a society where even the children are not safe from violence. The children from poor families in our country do not get proper care and upbringing.

They do not get proper food, education and health care and at times are victims of illegal trafficking. Society can not be developed if its children do not have the rights they deserve as future citizens.

If we can not ensure proper conditions for the children to grow up and be worthy citizens, we shall be failing in our duty to the country and the nation.
