Social Welfare Minister Sajad Lone on Thursday said that Dukhtaran-e-Millat chief Asiya Anrabi was not a role model for women in Jammu and Kashmir or elsewhere.

The Dukhtaran-e-Millat leader's image was displayed alongside Indira Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Mehbooba Mufti and Kiran Bedi's photographs in the 'Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao' campaign by the child care wing of the social welfare department in Anantnag district's Brang block yesterday.

The child development project officer (CDPO) of Anantnag's Breng block has since been suspended.

Reacting on the controversy, Lone said that “the person responsible for this goof up has been immediately placed under suspension and an enquiry has been ordered against her for the misconduct”.

In a statement, posted on his Twitter account, Lone said the publicity wing of the department works in decentralized format and CDPO’s devise their own publicity campaign, which doesn’t require approval of the higher authorities.

“The CDPO in question has committed a grievous error of judgement by including Ms Asiya Andrabi in the list of distinguished women achievers of the country,” he said.

“In any case, the department unambiguously states that Ms Asiya Andrabi is not a role model neither for the women of Jammu and Kashmir nor elsewhere in the world.”

“She at best is an aberration, representing the aimless fringe afflicting societies across the world.”
