Female foeticide getting worse in North-West India



By Rumbold on 22nd June, 2008 According to a new study by the charity ActionAid, the female-male ratio is worsening in North-West India, with one area in the Punjab only having 300 girls for every 1000 males amongst higher cast families. Under "normal" circumstances, there should be about 950 girls for every 1,000 boys, the charity said. ActionAid suggested the increasing use of ultrasound technology may be a factor in the trend. The real horror of the situation is that for women avoiding having daughters is a rational choice.

Allah said in His last book Quran:

"And when the girl-child that was buried alive is asked (8) For what sin she was slain, (9)"

who do that, their punishment in the hereafter will be great….

It is correct that a lot has to be done in this field. The good signs are that a number of social organisations has started working on this subject and their efforts has started bearing fruits.
