Iqbal Masih became a debt slave in a carpet factory in Pakistan when he was a child. At 12, he was murdered for fighting child slavery.
Iqbal gave other children the courage to leave their owners. His struggle to end bonded labour angered powerful people. Iqbal was killed when he was 12 in an attempt to silence him. Instead he has become a symbol for the fight agains child labour and bonded labour.
