It is worth mentioning that CSAM is a heinous form of content that involves the exploitation and sexual abuse of children. It is illegal, morally reprehensible, and causes immense harm to the victims involved.
The distribution, possession, or creation of CSAM is a serious criminal offence with severe legal consequences, and its existence perpetuates the exploitation and trauma suffered by innocent children.
All citizens are urged to avoid all kinds of transmission, viewership, and storage of such CSAM content to ensure zero exploitation of children.
The parents, the employers, the teaching community and the faith leaders are urged to help prevent the creation, transmitting and dissemination of CSAM material as it leads to moral depravity and quite often leads to sexual abuse as well.
