Asiya Andrabi features along CM Mehbooba in ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ poster at Kokernag


Senior women resistance leader who is undergoing detention in Central Jail Srinagar was featured in a ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ poster at a tourism festival in Kokernag area of Islamabad district.

Chief of his Dukhtaran-e-Milat Asiya Andrabi’s photograph was printed along with images of Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti, astronaut Kalpana Chawla, tennis star Sania Mirza, singer Lata Mangeshkar, Puducherry L-G Kiran Bedi, and a Nobel Peace Prize winner, Mother Theresa.

Asiya Andrabi is known for her pro-Pakistan stance on Kashmir issue.

Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, or ‘Save and educate the girl chid’ is a publicly funded social campaign. It was launched by the Narendra Modi government to tackle the “decline in CSR (child sex ratio) in 100 gender-critical districts,” the Women and Child Development ministry says on its website.

Modi’s BJP jointly governs Jammu and Kashmir with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

A district administration official of Islamabad told Kashmir Life that they have taken notice of the “mistake” and the person found responsible for the mistake will be taken to task.
