Child sexual abuse is considered as one of the gravest forms of abuse because it involves sexual acts with a minor. Its seriousness stems from the fact that a minor can never provide consent to any form of sexual activity. Furthermore, such abuse can have lasting effects on the physical and mental well-being of a victim. As one of the most stigmatized issues in the society, it is not only basic human rights violation, but also a major public safety concern.
