The problem of child pornography on the internet and social media has increased during the pandemic. Nowadays child pornography is a vital crime as per internet is concerned. During the global pandemic hour and countries being in lockdown, people including both children and adults are spending more time online and excessive. By pornography we generally mean the depiction of any content, whether printed or visual, that contains manifest narration, demonstration or display of sexual activities, sexual organs or any other obscene material with an intention to trigger the sexual excitement of the viewers. We call it child pornography when children are included in the said activity. Although, merely a prefix has been added to the term ‘pornography’ in this case, but this little prefix increases the dreadfulness of this term horrendously. The words ‘child’ and ‘sexual activity’ together already sound so wicked, and then displaying it to people who are watching it to arouse their sexual desires only make it worse. Consequently, such deeds provoke the exploitation, trafficking and violence towards children. This is the reason that child pornography is considered so heinous. The child is treated as equal to God. In current generation most of the people are harassing and making some videos likes pornography, by using the innocent child.
