@Jolly, Yes they do exploit the snakes, but I am sure that they don't sew their mouths, did you ever seen this kind of activity by your own eyes? Rather, they break their fangs and collect the venom in regular interval. And do you know that some time they kept the snakes in much more good living condition rather than any zoo, as because these snakes are the in-come source of money, and more over the snake charmers think that snake is God and they behave with snakes like wise. I hope you are now aware about the fact.

They are exploiting these snakes and even sew their mouths so that they cannot bite you. Plain cruelty.
