Woman Hacked to Death for Giving #Birth to #Daughters

January 21, 2013

Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Jan 13, 2013

30-year-old Kureshi Khatoon, who was already the mother of six girls, gave birth to her 7th daughter two weeks ago.  Her husband who was furious that they the child was not a boy, hacked his wife to death!  This however not an uncommon crime against women in India!  Click here to see other cases of women who are murdered for giving birth to girls.

THINK ON THIS: In the past people have suggested to us that men should be told that it is the men’s “fault” and not the women’s!!  But is this a solution? 

1) To begin with, women who give birth to girls are harassed, beaten, or killed even in the middle and upper-class educated homes, where men are well aware of this ‘biological fact!

2) Secondly, is the birth of a girl a “fault?”  Is it a bad event that we need to figure out who the “blame” should fall on for?

3) Thirdly, there is new research coming out that shows that men contribute both X and Y sperms, but which of these eventually fertilize the egg and result in either a boy or girl, depends on the mother and her food choices — whether this is more potassium or calcium in her diet! A 2008 research report from Oxford University, showed that women who took in more calories had a higher percentage of sons! Now you could argue, that in India where women are habitually and culturally starved, more than 50% are chronically under-weight and anemic, this might make a strong argument for women’s nutrition.  But think of this: A family force-feeds a woman during her pregnancy, and still ends up with a daughter? What do you think they will do with the woman then?

    There are many genocides in respect of women child as well women in general which also requires a serious fast track court and justice delivery system with harsh punishment

      True. People were very very angry during the Delhi Gang Rape protest about the injustice of the system when women and girls are raped. But why does rape cause more anger than other forms of violence on women and girls which are just are ugly and horrible?

    I think that there is some bad people and families out in India who should be made accountable for there actions against women and girls,its barbaric to blame a women for giving birth to daughters how medieval and callous,we cannot predict what sex a baby is going to be,anyway if there were no girls how would you have children,unless men go with men who can bear babies see how they like it..

    Saddens me so much to read all this. I am one of 7 sisters and I am so glad, we have two brothers too, and we have suffered a lot but mainly due to poverty, that made being too many sisters even worse. We are so glad we have each other, we are all educated from teachers to nurses and fashion designer to politician, we have 20 children between us . Due our fathers foresight the next generation in all in UK and all highly educated and useful members of community.

    I loved everything I’ve read and I greatly admire the women who have been able to overcome such, at times almost insurmountable difficultiest. I ask myself whether I would be able to do the same. Apart from the now greater awareness of the incredible ignorance and fear that lies at the bottom of all this wrong doing, shouldn’t the law have a bigger say? Often punishment is the only language that works! After all, traffic rules and devices do avoid accidents in large cities. Yes, it will take time! Perhaps the first steps have already been made !!
