It was legal for Christian slaves to be sold to Muslims[edit]

Not all of the Christian slaves were taken in raids. Russia permitted Russian and European Christian slaves to be sold in its own cities to Muslims.

The 'modern day slavery' source says 13.5 to 14.5 million Indians are slaves. This is absurd because clearly the definition of slavery used to derive this number, as for the Russian number, cannot what is commonly or publically understood as slavery. I think that this is because it includes sex workers as 'slaves'. That's a political point, but if the numbers are high because sex workers are included this needs to be explained rather than saying 500,000 plus slaves in Russia. Basically, ordinary people wouldn't agree that someone badly paid or working as a prostitute is a slave, and if some body says they are for political reasons, fine, but let's explain what the definition is. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:19, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

The article also includes references to external links that describe high mortgage payments as a form of "financial slavery". This is yet another misleading connection given the meaning of the word slavery as used in the title of the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Juanca911 (talkcontribs) 12:21, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
