5,00,000 girl child killed every year in India!
“Let us change the scene”
According to a report, Every year 5,00,000 baby girls are killed in India even before they step into this world. The practice is more prevalent among the weaker sections as their belief is that the education and marriage of a daughter is a financial burden on them.
My dear fellow citizens, if the above situation provokes us, haunts us, then let us join the campaign “Save the girl child” and try to change the mindset within our families and inspire others to think positively towards the girl child. Friends, it is not the sole responsibility of the government; it is also a social challenge which we, as responsible citizens, need to take up to put an end to this deviation.
I am proud to join Smt. Pratibha Devi Singh Patil, H.E. President of India , in her endeavour to initiate a crusade against female foeticide, gender bias and domestic violence against women, in capacity of an ordinary citizen and appeal to all those who have respect for their mothers, sisters and mankind. Do join the campaign “Save the girl child” and put your best efforts in bringing a positive change by saving the girl child.”
