Brampton: The message against the social menace of female foeticide is getting global overtones with special attention towards the evil prevalent in India. A walk is being organized at many places across globe for the Indian daughters, who are getting killed in the womb even before taking birth.
The campaign having started two years ago with walks across 6 cities has grown now to 22 cities across five countries.
The campaign is making waves across the social networking sites and getting many takers from across the globe.
“I could have been aborted because of being a girl. I was maybe given up/abandoned because I was a girl, so I am one of those girls missing from India’s population. And this cause is very important to me” says Loveen Gill, founder of Amar Karma and organizer of the walk against the said social evil in Brampton.
The race brought together women and men of different races, socio economic levels, political opinions, religious beliefs committed to creating awareness to end ‘female foeticide’ in India and other parts of the world”, wrote Loveen Kaur Gill, organizer of the event at Brampton.
The crusade also spread like a heat wave through the villages of Punjab after it finished 10 episodes of the article written by various female writers from around the world, and still continues.The campaign also turned viral after being part of the Global walk in Brampton, starting at Khalsa Community School, Brampton.
Loveen Kaur Gill, the originator of the campaign thanked everyone for participation and shared the success of the ongoing print editions.”We have penetrated the message through to families in villages, and they have sent us pictures and videos expressing their support, we have received pictures from many students from universities and schools and we are overwhelmed to know that it is working,” said Gill.
The group is now making documentaries and visuals to portray the cause.
