Bhopal: The echo of Beti Bachao Abhiyan (Save the Girl Child Campaign) launched by Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mr. Shivraj Singh Chouhan has not only transcended borders of the state and India but is reverberating now in Pakistan as well.

Ms Sofia Jamal, who is associated with famous Pakistani media group Dawn, has described Beti Bachao Abhiyan of Madhya Pradesh government led by Mr. Chouhan as a very positive initiative. She said that this campaign deserves encomiums since daughters are invaluable gift of nature.

Anchor of Dawn TV's popular programme "Kab Tak" Ms Sofia expressed this view while replying to a question during interview by a regional news channel Bansal News.

According to Ms Sofia, it has been a part of tradition in India and Pakistan that sons are preferred to daughters. While the fact of the matter is that daughters are not inferior to sons in any respect. Rather, they are ahead of boys in many fields. Apart from giving birth to children, they also do jobs and brining money to home. She admitted that she whole-heartedly praises this initiative of Madhya Pradesh government. Not only such campaigns are necessary in the interest of women, but there is also need to amend laws for their safety and security.

Bansal News Channel's interview with Ms Sofia Jamal was telecast yesterday (November 22, 2011) night.
