Minister for severest punishment to culprits
Akhnoor,Jan 15: Minister for Health, Horticulture and Floriculture Sham Lal Sharma on Sunday sought support of cross sections of the society to curb the menace of female foeticide.
He said Government has been trying its level best to keep a check on this inhuman crime, but entire society has to come forward and contribute in this social cause.
Describing female foeticide a great sin, which cannot be forgiven by any Universe Court, the Minister said that the people indulging in this practice should get severest punishment. “Nobody has right to kill an infant before taking birth and this needs to be condemned by one and all,” he added.
“All right thinking people should come out against this crime and supplement Government efforts at different levels.”
Urging the social and religious and credible Non-Governmental Organizations to play a positive role in providing the moral values to the younger generations, the Minister said that they should use their influence in order to carry out necessary reforms in the society.
