Please watch the following Channel 4 Documentary on “Bacha Bazi” (boy
dancers) in Afghanistan. The film provides a candid insight into the
horrific child exploitation and physical and sexual abuse currently
being carried out by the many of the Afghani elite, who appear to be the
new “untouchables”.

It is ironic that this horrible cultural
throw back was banned under the Taliban occupation but now Afghan police
turn a blind eye to the cruel practice, and even appear to provide
protection to those perpetrating these crimes. Perhaps a sign of the
lawlessness and deterioration of the war ravaged country.

This is
a must see film for anyone concerned with child welfare, the
exploitation of the vulnerable and the state of humanity. Check the clip below:
