Earlier this week, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) wrote to the district magistrate (DM) of south-east Delhi asking for an investigation into a complaint they received of children being "misled" at Shaheen Bagh about the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) by their elders and, as a result, may be suffering from 'mental trauma'. The top government child rights' body has now told the DM to send a child protection officer and a child welfare police officer to "identify these children and arrange counselling sessions for them and their parents, if deemed fit". They have 10 days to file a report. Meanwhile, three Congress-ruled states have made the Preamble to the Constitution part of school curriculum. The BJP has described the decision as a political one. They say it will backfire on Congress. We are asking tonight? Are India's children being made into pawns for politics? Should children be made aware of the politics of the day, given that they are going to inherit the world we leave them? Or should children be shielded from politics and be allowed to have a childhood?
