Female Infanticide


Dear mother I want to tell you that I know exactly what you feel. Hundreds of mothers were in the same position when finding out that they were pregnant. The difference is through the decision they made about the life they carry inside their womb. Do not take your roll so easily,: give life a chance, if you have this call from the Creator. Stop the barbaric act, you are a mother………Motherhood is a gift.

Oh! my mother, I pray that God will give you all the power you need to say no to this brutal sin. When we say no to God’s blessing, without any doubt we open a large gate to the terrible consequences that follow. Murder was and still is a sin in God’s eyes.

According to a recent report by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) up to 50 million girls and women have been wiped out by female feticides from India’ s population as a result of systematic gender discrimination in India. In most countries in the world, there are approximately 105 female births for every 100 males. In India, there are less than 93 women for every 100 men in the population.

Lot of people in India when they access to sex determination through Ultra sound, female infanticide is shockingly common. In rural areas, parents wait until the mother gives birth, and when they find out that a daughter is born, they go ahead and kill the baby by adopting various means such as strangling the baby, giving her poison, dumping her in a garbage bin, drowning her, burying her alive, starving her, stuffing her mouth with salt, or leaving her outdoors overnight so that she dies of exposure to the vagaries of the climate.

Now UNITED SIKH MISSION is going to take steps to save these female infants. Such unwanted female infants will be brought up by the UNITED SIKH MISSION.
