Talk to Al Jazeera - Kailash Satyarthi: Saving India's child slaves

Talk to Al Jazeera - Kailash Satyarthi: Saving India's child slaves For his work he has endured beatings and has received death threats. For his efforts and courage, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 - along with Pakistani youth activist Malala Yousafzai. For the past 35 years, Indian rights activist Kailash Satyarthi has devoted himself to freeing children working under terrible conditions in his native India. "The notorious people who engage children in slavery, the slave masters and traffickers, are powerful people, they are like mafia. They are well-connected with the local police and authorities. They earn a lot of black money.... Human trafficking is the largest illicit tade in the world today.... They are powerful people so risks are always there. I lost two of my colleagues - one was shot dead, one was beaten to death. I have scars almost everywhere on my body.... But I accepted it as challenge. Each time when these people tried to kill me I realised that I am on the right path," he says. Satyarthi's contribution to freeing children from exploitation and abuse is enormous, rescuing more than 80,000 children from illegal and hazardous work across India. But child labour remains a serious issue across the world. According to the International Labor Organisation, there are currently 168 million children engaged in forced labour worldwide. Satyarthi says the Nobel Prize is a recognition and honour to those children, who are still deprived of their childhood. However, the main question remains: Can child slavery be eradicated? Nobel Peace laureate Kailash Satyarthi talks to Al Jazeera about his fight against child slavery and abuse, women's rights in India, and how to protect children across the world.At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

🇮🇱 An Israel law that divides and discriminates | Inside Story

🇮🇱 An Israel law that divides and discriminates | Inside Story

Israel's parliament has narrowly passed a law that defines the country as a Jewish state. It gives only the Jews the right to self-determination, discriminating against one-fifth of the population which includes nearly two million Arab Israelis and other minorities. The law also demotes Arabic, leaving Hebrew as the only official language. The move has led to widespread anger, even among sections of the Jewish population. Arab Israelis are calling it racist and comparing it with apartheid. So, what's in store for them? How will the regional powers react to the controversial law?

But with the infestation of his cotton crops and rising debts, Sharif decides it is time to seek his fortune elsewhere. Sharif decides to go to Dubai despite warnings from his friends. The villagers sell the car and his family sells their hard-earned lands to cover his expenses. For the first time in his life, Sharif leaves his village, flies in an airplane and experiences a foreign land.

Amitabh Bachchan | 'We have a very strong cultural identity' 🇮🇳 | Talk to Al Jazeera

Amitabh Bachchan | 'We have a very strong cultural identity'  🇮🇳  | Talk to Al Jazeera

At 72 years of age Amitabh Bachchan is arguably still the most famous name in India's multi-billion dollar Hindi-language film industry. When you sit inside a darkened hall to watch a film, you never question the caste, creed or religion of the person sitting next to you. Yet you see the same film, you laugh at the same jokes, you cry at the same sentiments, sing the same songs. I doubt there are many institutions left in the world which can boast of such integration. Amitabh Bachchan, Bollywood movie star To his many devoted fans, "Big B," as he is known, is far more than just an actor – he is an Indian institution, a legend. His fans mob him on the streets, wait outside his house each Sunday to see him, and when he was seriously ill they held vigils to pray for his recovery. A prolific user of social media, he has 13 million Twitter followers. That popularity and fame has given him access to the country's leading politicians and decision makers. He once counted the Gandhi family as close friends and briefly entered the world of politics in the 1980s. By his own admission, it was not a successful career move. "I don't know politics, and I realised that after having won an election, I was not qualified. I had entered politics on an emotional note, and soon realised that emotions had nothing to do with politics," he told Al Jazeera. But his work in film and television continues, as does his influence. Bachchan has made more than 180 movies during his 45-year career – his latest film, Shamitabh, was released in early February. He is a passionate defender of Hindi-language cinema – known the world over as Bollywood – despite accusations that it is sexist, demeans women, and fails to deal with serious and political issues. "We do tackle many issues that are socially and morally concerning in India. Indeed all our films do. We always show that good will prevail over evil. We have a very vast and strong cultural identity; over 5,000 years of culture, and that is always depicted in our films," he said. We discuss Bollywood past and present, religion, and Indian politics as Amitabh Bachchan talks to Al Jazeera. One of India's biggest movie stars discusses his latest projects, his relationship with his fans, and politics in India.
