Yet another dead baby

A very small news item caught my attention today.

Daily Dawn reported that the body of a newborn baby was found in a drain in the limits of the Kalri police station on Friday.

A relief association volunteer told Dawn that the child was given ablution and buried in the Mewashah graveyard after conducting legal formalities. Since no post-mortem examination was conducted, it was left undetermined how and when the baby boy had died.

While all Pakistanis are busy denouncing Israeli aggression in Gaza and the continued murders of men and women, its about time we take stock of what is happening in our own backyard. We may not be able to do much for the children that are dying in Gaza but can’t we do something about those who are dying right here, in our own communities for various reasons.

    If we allow post-mortems in Pakistan on average 5-8 out of 20 dies of a somewhat, “suspicious death” in Pakistan (that includes “malpractices”). Apparently on all the protests and topi-drama on Gaza, a Jordanian diplomat once told me, “Ali, all the prophets should have been born in Lahore instead on Arab lands

    @ Tazeen,

    Thanks for the post this here so people know more about this, awareness, brutality and harshness, what kind of that mother or let’s say a women who trashed her baby before born?

    I will take this issue more forward just for the sake of awareness. Now I hope those people does not mind who are in the favor of this and will not appear their heads as an opposition.

    I heard that kind of things are daily part of life in India, I think this virus is spreading….
