It is important because millions of child domestic workers (CDWs) in Pakistan regularly become victims of violence, abuse, exploitation, rap, torture and murder. Since January 2010, till June 2012, 19 CDWs are killed by their employers. It is the only occupation in Pakistan that has resulted such deaths. It is because parents, guardians and middlemen sale children to employers. Therefore, it is important to save CDWs from an unending torture, abuse, exploitation and finally murder by banning it under the banned list of occupations of the Employment of Children Act 1991.
