BEIJING: Chinese legislature has reclassified sex with minor girls including child prostitutes as rape. The move comes after decades of child abuse and abusers getting away with lighter sentences.
The National People's Congress Standing Committee, which is the highest law making body, repealed an existing law concerning the crime of sex with underage prostitutes because it resulted in lighter sentences, and reclassified the crime as rape.
At present, sex with underage prostitutes attracts jail sentences from five to 15 years. After being regarded as rape, offenders will get much tougher sentences, officials said.
Much appreciated. All countries must follow this

Even India's PM Modi married an underage girl and abandoned her. This is hindu culture.
Narendra Modi was 18 years old and Jashodaben was approximately 16. That is
what was the age of your forefathers when got married?
Does you know Hindu culture to comment !! Which religion u belong. Sickular or Sonias !!
Next do not claim that Modi also ditched your mother.
India has the highest number of child brides.
Even child porn is legal in India.
Why is a child or minor is in prostitution business? The Chinese government should work on preventing child or minor from becoming a prostitute.
Praiseworthy - India should do the same.
Child prostitution, child marriages was the result of utter poverty on the part of the parents. "I can't feed and dress my daughter. Let her get married to a man who will look after her properly,' was the mentality of the parents. If they couldn't get her a husband, the girl could indulge in prostitution to feed herself.
