This baby girl was thrown from a two storey building in #Karachi. She is now recovering in a hospital. Sons are celebrated, daughters are discarded. What kind of misogynistic #culture is this? pic.twitter.com/XQY2jzHCsO

However, a case has been registered on the state’s behalf. It is under sections 338 (woman who causes herself to miscarry a fetus), 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of the offense, or giving false information to screen offender) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
Chhipa has taken the responsibility of the thrown off newborn child after she survived the incident, until her biological parents ask for her custody. Chhipa’s organization works tirelessly for orphans and abandoned children who are often not accepted in society. A valiant salute to these superheroes of Pakistan because they don’t think wearing a cape is necessary.
We are so shocked and disappointed with such inhumane behavior by the parents.
