Abstract

Twelve-year-old Iqbal Masih, a former bonded child laborer in the carpet industry and a child rights activist in Pakistan, was killed in April 1995 near Lahore, Pakistan. Pakistan police claimed that his death had nothing to do with his activism for children’s rights and against bonded child labor.1.
