The Chief Minister of Kerala Pinarayi Vijayan today stated that the Government will not tolerate people justifying pedophilia of any form.
Vijayan was referring to some of the recent incidents wherein a few groups of people have justified paedophilic through their interactions in social media. He added that such incidents are not good for a progressive society like ours.

The statement of the CM comes hours after Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi raised concerns over the 20,000 plus children missing from Kerala over the last two years.
Satyarthi was speaking at a rally organized by the State Government in solidarity with his ‘Bharat Yatra’ against child abuse.
Today, I am in god’s own country, Kerala. Every time I see a child smile, I see god in it. And abuse of any child is abuse of that divinity. pic.twitter.com/QOY5uDc9k2
