“Apart from hunger and starvation, the Almajiris are saddled with the inhuman treatment of transporting them to their states of origin in trucks meant to convey cargo, the trauma of being rejected by their home state governments is painful, shameful and unacceptable.”

The minister also called for the Child Rights Act to be implemented by the governors in their states so as to protect their rights of the almajiri children.

“The Northern Governors Forum (NGF) should bring the issues of Almajiri to a logical conclusion, as well as respect and protect their human rights by implementing the Child Rights Act in states yet to pass it into law,” Tallen added.
