Ulema, Imams urged to raise voice against female foeticide
Srinagar, May 23: The participants at a seminar “The Heinous Crime of Female Foeticide and its Alarming Growth in Kashmir” today urged the Ulema and Imams of Masajids to raise their voice against female foeticide.
The participants unanimously adopted resolutions saying: “The women folk is requested not to become part of this heinous crime, which is a stigma on the dignity of women. Because in the Arab society it was man who would bury his daughter alive, in modern society it is the mother who allows her female foeticide to take place; The Government Colleges, schools and educational institutions along with the private school management are requested to start imparting Religious moral teachings through introducing Islamic Studies in their syllabi, as the ignorance from religious teachings finally leads to such crimes of heinous nature; the Government is requested that all such centres which are meant for detecting pre-natal sex and performing abortion should be banned immediately and any person associated with any kind of activity leading to this determination or termination of female foeticide should be severely dealt with by issuing non-bailable warrant against him and he should be given life imprisonment.”
During the seminar organized by “Shama Foundation” at Government College of Women, Nawakadal here, Central University Vice-chancellor, Prof Abdul Wahid Qureshi, emphasized on making people aware about such heinous crimes and their serious impacts on the society.
Prof. H N Rafiabadi, Director- S.H Institute of Islamic Studies, University of Kashmir and the Trustee of Shama Foundation deliberated on the issues of female foeticide and presented the declining female population records of recent census-2011. He acquainted the audience about the alarming increase in female foeticide and its repercussions on the social set-up of J&K.
Shama Foundation Chairman, Ghulam Nabi Shaida informed the audience with the efforts and initiatives put forth by the Foundation to highlight the role and status of women in the society.
