Social media is shockingly neutral on online child safety issues: Ncpcr | Lucknow News

Lucknow: Chairperson, National Commission for the Protection of Children’s Rights (NCPCR), Priyank Kanoongo expressed concern about new age child safety challenges emerging online.
Speaking exclusively to TOI on the sidelines of his visit to the state capital, he said, “Social media platforms pose new challenges to child safety. Take the example of grooming for example. Children are manipulated on social media platforms, technically known as grooming and these agencies are not willing to cooperate. The government wants these companies to give parents the right to access children’s social media accounts.
Claiming that social media platforms prefer to ignore issues such as phishing, grooming, cyberbullying etc., he said: ‘We’re not asking them to give rights to strangers… and therefore their dithering on engagement parents to monitor their children’s use of social media is shocking and unacceptable. Suggesting parents to be extremely careful about their child’s online activity, he said: “The world of deep web and dark web is dirtier than they can even comprehend. They must educate themselves to protect their children from risks.
Stating that the commission had dozens of examples linking the attractiveness of young girls and boys on social media to trafficking rings, he said: “Recently a young girl from Kolkata, who posted her songs on Instagram, been seduced by someone pretending to be a musical director. . The girl was rescued 50 km from Indore.
Similarly, a Delhi-based schoolgirl left her home to meet her boyfriend whom she met online and who turned out to be a small car mechanic in his 40s. Stories like this abound. Sexting and exchanging self-shared pornographic material is becoming the most common crime. »
Discussing some of the NCPCR’s major achievements over the past few years, Kanoongo, who was reappointed chair of the commission, said, “Some of the few things that make my job extremely satisfying include the ability to undertake an audit of all children’s homes in the country. Then the commission was able to reunite over 1.45 lakh children with their own homes. We were able to formulate a policy for street children and lobby for the admission of children from economically weaker sections into schools. All of this work is groundbreaking.
