|The aid that the UK gives to India, Pakistan and Afghanistan has nothing to do with lifting their people out of poverty, it is solely a political relationship. In that part of the world politics has a very different meaning.|
Almost a quarter of the world's population lives there, most, in abject poverty, we can't begin to imagine.
I'm not familiar with all of the reasons for an aversion to female offspring, but I think, as ever, the problems stem from age old customs and traditions, and religious practices, which people here, and there, are reluctant to change.
So they'd rather commit infanticide, than change the stupid tradition of 'dowries'.
Just another example of the hateful influences of religion and old tradition, as far as I'm concerned.
Just more deluded people, demanding "respect" for their BS.
I'm confused, because in other posts you have said that religious customs should be "celebrated" and yet here you are basically calling a whole religion bullshit.
Usually you are one of the first people to jump on here and call me a bigot for speaking out against religious customs.
Are you no longer a liberal now then?
