Man fines wife for giving birth to baby girl

Recommended Posts

Patna: A man in Bihar Tuesday imposed a fine of Rs25,000 (Dh1,864) on his wife for giving birth to a female child, forcing the local administration to intervene.


Ironically, Nargis, a girl born on Monday in a village in the neighbouring state of Uttar Pradesh, was welcomed as the world's seven billionth baby.


Authorities said they had to personally intervene into the matter after Mohammad Manzoor, a resident from Muslim-dominated Purnea district in Bihar, drove out his 30-year-old wife Shahnaz from his house saying she would be allowed back in the house only when she pays the penalty amount.


According to officials in the area, Manzoor even declared the fine would be doubled if she gave birth to another baby girl while categorically stating, "Girls don't matter and this addition is a load."
