 Sri Says Killing Daughters is Akin to Killing Saints
Art of Living Founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has said that killing a girl child is akin to killing a thousand saints. Speaking at the 'Doctors for Daughters: Faith in Action against Sex Selection' workshop, Sri said that pre-natal sex selection was just not right.

"Even in our scriptures, women have always been given more prominence as in many cases the Goddess name precedes the God's like in Lakshmi Narayana, Sita Ram or Rahde Shyam", he said

He added that doctors must take up the fight and must tell people who practice sex selection that it is not a good virtue to have.

"Not welcoming a girl child at birth today, you automatically lose the right to welcome the daughter-in-law later", said, Dr Adhao, President, Indian Medical Association, who was also present at the workshop.
