President introduces new app ‘Selfie with Daughter’
Indian President Pranab Mukherjee has introduced a new mobile app called ‘Selfie with Daughter’. The app aims to create awareness about female foeticide in the country.
Female foeticide is the process of removing a female foetus from the womb of mother before birth. It is done after the sex identification tests like ultrasound scan. Female foeticide and any test done to identity the sex of the baby in the womb of a mother is illegal in India.
President Mukherjee has asked people to take photographs with their daughters and upload on the app to make the campaign a success. He hopes that this would slowly help in solving the problems of gender inequality in the country.
