Hindu baby beheaded inside Mother's womb in Islamist Pakistan's upper caste Muslim dominated Sindh.
News by NRI Herald Australia, 22 June 2022
On Sunday, June 19, the staff of the government-run Rural health centre (RHC) in the Sindh province in Pakistan reportedly cut off a newborn baby’s head and left the severed head in the mother’s womb, putting the woman’s life in jeopardy.
The woman was identified as 32-year-old Hindu woman from Bheel community. She was rushed to a neighbouring hospital in Mithi, but there were no medical facilities available to treat her. Her family eventually took her to Jamshoro’s Liaquat University of Medical and Health Sciences (LUMHS), where the newborn’s severed head was removed from the mother’s womb, saving her life.
Bheels are often found living as landless peasants in lower Sindh, having been trapped into bonded labor by upper-caste Muslim landlords. They have, however, considerably diversified their occupational base during the past two decades, thereby lessening their dependency on landlords.
Professor Raheel Sikander, who heads the gynaecology unit of LUMHS told the media,
“The Bheel Hindu woman, who belongs to a far-flung village in Tharparkar district, had first gone to a Rural Health Centre (RHC) in her area but with no female gynaecologist available, the inexperienced staff caused her immense trauma.”-Said Mr Sikander
In a botched procedure on Sunday, a RHC staff cut off the unborn baby’s head and left it in the mother’s womb, he added.
How was the woman’s life saved?
As per report published by NewsNCR, Professor Raheel Sikander told that:
The woman’s family then brought her to LUMHS, where the rest of the newborn’s body was removed from the womb. After which the life of the victim was saved. Sikandar said that the child’s head was stuck inside and the mother’s uterus was torn.- Reported NewsNCR
Due to which the stomach had to be operated with the help of surgery and the head of the child was taken out to save his life. After the incident, Dr. Juman Bahoto, Director of Sindh Health Services, has also ordered a separate inquiry into the matter.- further Reported NewsNCR
