Pakistani TV show gives away abandoned baby girls in Ramadan ratings war

A prime-time TV show in Pakistan has found a novel way to win ratings during Ramadan, by giving away abandoned babies to childless couples.

'Amaan Ramazan', a popular talk show hosted by religious scholar Aamir Liaquat Husain and broadcast during the holy month, has given away two babies since the beginning of this year's fasting period.

Prior to handing over the second baby in Wednesday's episode, Mr Husain told the audience: "This is a beautiful girl who was thrown on pile of garbage by somebody.  See how beautiful and innocent she is?"

The baby's new parents are said to have tried to conceive for 14 years without success.

According to reports the show's producers had collaborated with a Pakistani NGO called the Chhipa Welfare Association to give away the baby girls. 

Among the Association's projects is providing so-called "cradles" in and around Karachi for families to place "unwanted" children. 

Female infanticide is particularly prevalent among impoverished Pakistani families who are often burdened with expensive dowries when girls reach marriageable age, leading to families either killing girl babies or abandoning them on the streets.

A spokesman for the NGO told The Telegraph: "Often we just find the bodies so our message that we make is to tell people to bring their babies to us, don’t just leave them."

"Amaan Ramazan", which is produced by Geo News, is one of the most popular television programmes in Pakistan and has often been described as the "Islamic Price is Right".
