Religious leaders in Malaysia signed a declaration against human trafficking on July 30.
KUALA LUMPUR – Ten leaders of different religions in Malaysia signed an Inter-Faith Joint Declaration against Human Trafficking, in an event hosted by the Catholic Archdiocese of Kuala Lumpur.
The faith leaders on July 30 jointly declared that “every girl, boy, woman and man is a free person, and all exist for the good of all in equality and fraternity. That people are trafficked and exploited physically, economically, sexually and psychologically for the profit, benefit and pleasure of others goes against the fundamental conviction that all people are equal and have the same freedom and dignity”.
