Through strong communication and dialogues with the communities, intolerance issue could be solved but not through the reactions”, said Kailash Satyarthi. He was interacting with journalists in Bengaluru on Friday.“Globally, I want to find long term sustainable solutions for these prevailing issues”, he said. Commenting on the awards return issue he said, “I have only one award and it was given by some others. India has a mixed culture and respect for each other and tolerance are the essential ingredients of this culture. I support and promote more of inter caste marriages which will support Unity in Diversity,” he stressed.Further he said, “So far a child on its own has not created any violence. It is the elders and the society who feed it with the ideas of religion, caste and colour. However, respecting every religion is in the DNA of Indians,” he said adding that, “Instead of polluting the minds of children, one can learn a lot from them. Giving them a chance to develop their own ideas can help in making society a better,” he added. Juvenile Justice Act:Commenting over the amendment of Juvenile Justice Act said, “The Act needs to be amended and a proposal is in the parliament. The change in Act will clarify the punishment for heinous juvenile crime and proposes to punish the offender same as the adult offenders but without death penalty. Now the parliament has to take a call on it,” he said adding that the new act might decide the final punishment for the minor offender in Delhi Nirbhaya case, who is supposed to be released in December.Child trafficking is a major issue in India and eight child missing cases are registered per hour while the tracing rate is just four.
