I support the I Support Movement
According to the Indian Constitution, there are reservations for Minorities, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Backward Classes, Other Backward Classes and those with physical disabilities, etc.
Since orphaned or abandoned children are considered as casteless and religionless, they do not enjoy the benefits under the reservation system in India, which is predominantly based on caste & religion based quotas.
As per a survey, there are 2,32,46,000 (approx: 2.5 Crores) orphaned/abandoned children in India. (Ref: http://letshelps2orphanchildren.blogspot.com/2010/11/indian-orphan-statistics.html)
As the Constitution of India states in article 15(4), children are that section of society that are most vulnerable to abuse and discrimination, and therefore, should be given the utmost priority while drafting secure systems, schemes or benefits. It is duly noted that social justice is not achieved at any level for orphaned or abandoned children. There is hence a critical need for a Special Protection/Reservation Bill for orphaned or abandoned children.
I believe that the recommendation by 'I Support' (A unit of Abilashrayam Trust (R)) in passing a bill favoring special legislation / protection / reservation for orphaned / abandoned children is genuine and valid. I hence forth in my sane mental state pledge my support towards the 'I support' movement for a special legislation to protect the interests of orphaned / abandoned children through reservations. I would request the government of India to consider a special legislation to protect the interests of orphaned abandoned children through a 'special reservation bill'.
