Female Genocide in India and the '50 Million Missing Campaign'
From:  'The Reality of india'  - (Facebook)



'Missing' is actually a euphemism.  These are not 'missing persons' cases. Here the term in fact means—eliminated. However, 'missing' has stuck ever since an Indian, Dr. Amartya Sen, first used the term in 1986 to draw attention to the vast divergence in India's natural gender ratio.   Where the average male to female ratio in most human populations is about 100:105, Sen, using references from the census data, estimated that India was 'missing' about 37 million women — women who should have been in the population but could not be accounted for.  This warning rang no bells for the Indian administration, and the gender downslide continued. By 2005, almost twenty years after the first alert, the International Herald Tribune reported that 50 million women were 'missing' from India's population.

Occasionally one reads in Indian papers about baby body parts being found in a well in the compound of some clinic, or a young woman dying of burns under suspicious circumstances due to a supposed kitchen accident.  But there is nothing in the news that suggests a blood-bath on the scale of a genocide.  A specific table containing information relating to the annual rates of female homicide in India gives a clearer idea of the truth.  This includes the means of elimination, and the estimate for the annual rate of each category.

Annual Rates of Female Homicide in India

- Female foeticide approximately 1 million.
- Female infanticide approximately 25000 in the State of Kerala alone.
- Dowry-related murders approximately 25000.
- Pre adolescent mortality 1 in 6 dies before 15 yrs (CRY).
- Mortality rate 40% higher for girls under 5 than boys the same age (UNICEF).
- Maternal mortality rate (MMR) 136,000
(1 woman dies every 5 minutes due to pregnancy-related causes) (WHO).

The No.1 means of elimination is female foetal abortions. An estimated 1 million female foetuses are selectively eliminated in India each year.  That number is expected to rise to 2.5 million within the next few years. 

Method No.2  is female infanticide, a practice that has a long history in India. So far there has been no national average estimated for female infanticide, largely because it is difficult to track down as there are no laws for citizens to register births. Nevertheless, existent data gives an indication of the scale of the practice. In the state of Kerala, one of India's most 'progressive' states with a literacy rate of over 90 per cent, it is estimated that about 25,000 new born girls are killed every year.   In other states like Bihar, where the issue of gender bias is plainly discernable, one survey reveals that mid-wives interviewed admitted to being paid to kill almost 50 per cent of the baby girls they delivered. 

No.3 method of elimination is dowry murders or 'dowry deaths.'  Despite the fact that a majority of dowry-related homicides of young married women in India are never even filed with the police, in the late 1990s it was estimated that at least 25,000 young married women were murdered in cold blood by their husbands and in-laws in dowry extortion cases.  That number has continued to rise.  The practice of dowry has also spread to communities like tribal groups which traditionally did not have the custom of dowry.

Another means of elimination of females in India is the abnormally high mortality rate for girls under 5 years.  In 2007, UNICEF reported that the mortality rate in India for girls under five was 40 per cent higher than for boys of the same age.  Most of these girls are dying of nutritional and medical neglect. The neglect is often deliberate.  Parents are not only biased in how they distribute food among their sons and daughters, but often they do not want to pay for a sick daughter's medical treatment—cases that would in most countries amount to negligent homicide.

Yet another means of female elimination in the Indian society is maternal mortality. In 2007, India accounted for the highest maternal mortality rate in the world—with one woman dying of pregnancy-related causes every five minutes.  The reasons cited are inadequate medical care and early-aged pregnancies in girls due to child marriages. Generally in cases of child marriages both the bride and groom are children. But the issue is really with the girls because the health impact is on them. Their bodies are underdeveloped and they are too young to bear children—which results in complications and deaths during childbirth.  With serial pregnancies from a very young age there is a complete breakdown in the health of these girls by the time they enter adulthood.

In a culture that exists in India, women have practically no say or control over their own reproductive processes, and essentially serve as wombs for patriarchy's narcissistic desire for an endless lineup of sons.  The complete data through a comprehensive table indicates that the numbers for death rates of females in India have shot up very rapidly.  It's quite evident how India today is liable for one of the worst genocides in human history!

Female genocide rampant among the rich and educated as well

The common assumption therein is that if India's massively impoverished and illiterate masses were to receive a decent education and a reasonable level of income, the nation will pull itself out of this social quagmire. However, surveys show that some of the highest rates of female foeticide occur among the comfortable middle and upper classes, who not only have the means to access adequate medical facilities, but who show an equal prevalence towards the practice of dowry and dowry-related murders. There is no obvious correlation to indicate that the poor and illiterate contribute more towards female genocide than do the wealthy and educated.

Indian communities in the U.S., U.K., and Canada .. despite being wealthy, well-educated, and socially well placed have engaged in female foetal abortions to such an extent, that there is now a conspicuous skewing of the gender ratio in these communities, to the extent that governments and International bodies are beginning to take note. In 2006, in a speech at the United Nations General Assembly, it was announced by Nicholas Eberstadt that the unequal gender ratio achieved in some of these communities was 'biologically impossible.'

List of female homicide in India

This list includes: 

-   bride-burning
-   widow burning (sati)
-   dowry-death
-   doodh-peeti
-   kuri-mar
-   johar

Each of these is a method of female homicide widely practiced, widely accepted, and culturally-specific to India. Though sati, the practice of the burning alive of a widow on her husband's pyre, was banned by the colonial British administration in 1829, since India's independence in 1947 there have been more than 40 reported cases and many more unreported ones.

The old tradition still practiced in the north-west India is a method of killing new born girls by drowning them in buckets of milk.  The practice is called doodh-peeti. 

The term kuri-mar is a reference to  communities in northern India that traditionally killed all their daughters.  Kuri mar means 'daughter killer.'  This community has often bragged openly of having no daughters, only sons.  Most of their new born female babies would be buried underground in earthen pots.

Johar is a practice that socially compels Indian women to commit individual or mass suicide, when they are attacked and raped by rival communities, in order to preserve their family honour.  When a practice acquires a name in the Indian society, it becomes acceptable at the subconscious level of that community's collective thinking. 

In several big Indian cities where thousands of widows who have been driven out of their homes or some who have escaped to avoid sati , eke out a living by begging on the streets or prostituting themselves.

Apathy of Indian community over female genocide

Evidence of apathy is found in the average response of an Indian to most of the crimes mentioned above. Where the murder of a female new born by her own parents, or the gang lynching of a young married woman by her husband and in-laws would send shock waves through most communities, in India it hardly evokes a response.  If pressed for one, the response is most likely to be a bland, nonchalant acknowledgement that such things do happen here.

Although India has made laws to counter  female foeticide, dowry, and dowry 'deaths, the misogyny that promotes the objectification of women, treating them like usable and disposable objects, has such deeply pervasive cultural and historical roots that it sometimes seems impossible to surmount. It permeates every corner of society.  Laws are widely flouted.  Thousands of doctors, ultrasound and abortion clinics routinely cater to the female killing fields.  Police and courts are corruption-riddled and bureaucratic— so much so that most cases of dowry-related homicides go unregistered and uninvestigated, and are passed off as 'suicides' or 'accidents.'

The real danger is the rank apathy of the Indian nation to its own predicament. India is not even attempting to pull itself out of this horrendously annihilating abyss. In 2008, the U.N. announced, the number of 'missing' women in India had climbed to 62 million. What this means in terms of India's social reality is that there are at least 62 million males without hope of ever finding female partners from within their own cultural setting. The possibility of social mayhem under such conditions is terrifying — and what it would involve could lead to widespread sexual crimes, perversion, and near anarchical law-and-order situations. Already, there is massive trafficking of girls across state boundaries in India, to be sold as 'brides' in those regions where the gender ratio has dropped so low that men cannot find women to marry. Families with many sons, who cannot afford to 'buy' a bride for each, often buy a 'bride' for all the men to share.  Where every other social crisis that India currently faces—poverty, the nuclear standoff, the HIV/AIDs epidemic, and population explosion— could, under the most optimistic situations be somewhat dealt with, there is no solution to India's gender-ratio skewing.

Human rights groups are urging everyone in India to respond to this issue.  They are telling Indians that next time they hear of a case of female infanticide, or foeticide, or dowry murder— they must speak up. Speak loud.  Rant, rave, protest, resist, but must not say—'this happens,' and look away.

Conclusion and shocking display of apathy by the Indian upper class

The author of this article and the founder of the "50 million missing campaign" while addressing a local chapter of the Rotary International in India on this topic, made a desperate plea to the audience believed to be of the socially conscionable stratum of society, expecting to stir this audience on the 50 Million Missing Campaign.  But the response of the audience that evening was most unexpected.  A veteran Rotarian on the dais declared, in blistering, bitter tones, that the author's speech was 'perverse,' who, if invited again should come with a more optimistic message.  He urged his fellow Rotarians not to applaud the author's speech. The audience coldly complied, till the embarrassed President of the club coaxed them into a mild, half-hearted applause.  If this was the response from India's so called educated, civic-minded groups, what were we to expect from the general public? And why would this speech infuriate them so much?   The reason soon became obvious.  This audience was the public—the participatory public. Police, government administrators, doctors, wealthy, educated upper and middle class businessmen.  They were offended and defensive because a light had been flashed into their collective consciousness, and at that moment, they had no place to hide.   Perhaps this response is exactly what the "50 million missing campaign" needs to provoke to jolt India out of its genocidal apathy.

Taubah, ya Allah!  This country is shameful.  It's exactly the same crime which used to happen in 7th century Arabia prior to Islam.  No wonder the kuffar Saudis love kuffar India so much.  Hellfire awaits all such demons!

Thanks for this detailed info, sister Zeynab.  I learned a lot of stuff from this which I didn't quite know before.

The awfulness of these effin hindu customs is absolutely hair-raising.  To know that "educated" ones are just as complicit in such heinous crimes as the others puts this country to irretrievable shame in this world and at the depth of the flames of Hellfire in the next.  And as usual, not a word in the western media.  For how long with the fuking west smooch the ass of this lowly criminal country?  As for the Saudis, I'm not at all surprised at their good relations with India.  The more a society perpetrates cruelty on its people, the more loved it will be by that house of farts called the Sauds.

Even though female genocide in India is no secret, these details are much too disgusting.   Spit on this f***** nation.
