Recently, the Women and Child Development Ministry (WCD) has been shouting a lot about female feticide. And they are engrossed in the noise-creation to such a level that they could not even distinguish between Indian and Pakistani army Chiefs and included one of Pakistani Army Chief’s photos in one of their ads on female feticide.
It caused such a national shame that the PMO had to issue apology which was indeed awkward. When the blunder was performed by the WCD, ideally the responsibility of failure should also have been owned up by them, but unfortunately in India, females are used to a lot of pampering, and so the Protector PMO covered up for the national shame caused by the WCD.
As if that wasn’t enough, recently the WCD is giving ad about female feticide on television, radio, etc, saying, “Is it not worth worrying that there are only 960 females for 1000 males”.
Now, that’s a new one; a misleading stunt to garner sympathy on women’s issues and gather funds. The Natural Human Sex Ratio is 1.1. That means,960 females (as reported by the WCD), there should have been 1056 males but there are only 1000 males. So can the WCD ministry tell, whether it’s a matter of concern for males or females?
Is it not time to shut down the misleading Women and Child Development Ministry?
