That this House is concerned that tourists in India's Andaman Islands are treating the recently-contacted Jarawa tribe like an attraction in a human safari park; notes the ongoing media storm in India and worldwide caused by the video of Jarawa women being exploited; further notes that the abuse was carried out on the Andaman Trunk Road which was ordered to be closed by the Supreme Court of India in 2002; expresses concern that the government of India is yet to act on the Supreme Court's ruling despite the current storm of protest; further notes the overwhelming evidence of harm caused by the continued and illegal use of the road; and calls on the government of India to provide an alternative route and to take immediate action to close the Andaman Trunk Road in compliance with the law.
