I don't get it. They're saying how there should be a non judgement environment, but do they mean abortion is okay?

Basically yeah, think they call it "pro-choice"    they completely decided to ignore what bani says, wonder why ....

The issue of abortion is highly complex. The scenario above is more common where safe abortion is not available. In times when abortion was illegal in the UK, many women sought the services of back street abortionists, often putting themselves at risk of permanent damage or even death.  

Bro there's abortion clinics everywhere in Punjab because tragically its a popular demand. The baby was obviously thrown into the river because its a girl. 

In Punjab you can see abortion clinic adverts plastered in the shahrs

Revenge abortion happens as well. In India my own cousins wife aborted his baby 5 times and then she used to tell him. Its very easy to get abortions done in Punjab.

Then its a case of trying to influence culture to reduce these unwanted pregnancies through counselling the parents, proper contraception etc. 

I can't imagine why a woman would go through 5 abortions unless her husband was trying to force her to have children she didn't want.  Bizarre. 

They do use contraception but they don't want girl babies, that's why there are so many abortion clinics in Punjab. 

It was a "love" marriage, didn't turn out well so she used to get the babies aborted to get back at him, he told my mother how she gets the baby aborted every time and then comes back and rubs it in. Her own mother confirmed the abortions and said she was part of it as well.

Unfortunately some women do that, get an abortion for "revenge" 

Really sick twisted world we live in, the things I've seen and heard, makes you suspicious about everyone and everything.

Demographic Profile of Punjab (India, 2011)

 

Just looking at some statistics regarding the sex ratios. This is from 2011 census, the biggest difference is in the 15-19 age group, this would be the cohort born between 1990-1995.

The sex ratio dropped considerably between 1981 census and the 1991 census and dropped even further in 2001 and then has climbed back in the 2011 census 

This is between 0 to 6 age group:

In 1981, there were 908 girls to every 1000 boys

In 1991, there were 875 girls to every 1000 boys

In 2001, there were 798 girls to every 1000 boys

In 2011, there were 846 girls to every 1000 boys

Now I have absolutely no idea when abortion was legalised or became common in Punjab and India but what do you think happened between 1981 and 1991?

I know my mum told me that after 1984, so many young lads went "missing" that parents with girls found it hard to get their daughters to get married because there was a shortage of boys.

Now I don't know if correlation means causation in this instance, could it be the fact that because of what happened in the 1980s and even up to the early 90's, the birth of the boy was seen as more valuable than it already was and this resulted in girls getting aborted.

Though what we have seen is the ratios are creeping back up but not at 1991's level. There is another census this year, let's see what comes out of that one

Terrible. They'd probably be better off separating, but no doubt that would be considered an even greater sin.

What is the world coming too? No hope it seems. 

bro he isn't alive anymore, died a broken man. She on the other hand got married to some NRI from somewhere in Europe and moved abroad. 

It really is terrible, the things people do.

And these are supposedly the naive coy females from India,  Anyway don't want to go off topic ....

      VJKK VJKF I am planning on enrolling in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes soon. I have a few questions about how I could enrol while planning on taking Amrit. How would I keep rehit of the kakkars while practising my skills without hurting my opponent in the gym? Back when I was younger I enrolled in Taekwondo and they usually told me to take off my kara so I would not hurt my opponent while sparring. Currently my only solution is keeping my kara and a small kard or kirpan in my Kes, but this also raises another question. If I tied a normal or commando style patka, they are quite stable, but my kakkars would probably rip the cloth. I’m not going to wear a Dumala unless it it my last option because I would prefer something light weight while sparring, and during sports I have seen many Dumale fall off. What style should I wear that is stable enough for getting thrown around but not getting loose?   Thanks.
    • Make no mistake about it, we are at a cross road. Every other last community is shaking off their colonial baggage. You see this coming from everywhere. We need it even more than others because our lot were so deeply entwined in this previously.  And it brought us nothing but death and destruction and losses. 
    • Situation escalating, wonder how long there will be similar in USA, Canada and UK @Kaurr @5aaban https://www.news.com.au/finance/economy/why-proindia-supports-clashed-with-sikhs-at-melbournes-federation-square/news-story/9b842c48d5c3142733727dd370ef71dc Why Pro-India Supports clashed with Sikhs at Melbourne’s Federation Square An ugly clash in the heart of Melbourne between two Indian ethnic groups erupted last weekend with up to 100 people embroiled in the fracas – but what started it? Rebecca Borg   @rebeccaaborg   4 min read February 1, 2023 - 9:22AM   Over the weekend, a Melbourne landmark became the centre of an ugly clash between two Indian ethnic groups in scenes rarely seen in Australia. Footage posted to social media captured the moment about 100 people broke out into a fight, using flags as weapons outside Federation Square on Sunday afternoon. The brawl, which broke out at about 4.30pm, occurred during a referendum event organised by US-based group Sikhs for Justice, who are campaigning to create a separate Sikh-majority state called Khalistan in India’s Punjab region. The state of Punjab was established in 1947 when the partition of India split the former Raj province of Punjab – which was previously under British rule – between India and Pakistan when the two countries gained their independence. But because Khalistan will take away land from parts of Punjab less than a century on from its emergence, pro-India activists are against the movement creating a rivalry between the two groups. An ugly clash in the heart of Melbourne between two Indian ethnic groups erupted last weekend with up to 100 people embroiled in the fracas. Dozens of Sikhs were spotted lining up to vote in the early hours of Sunday. Picture: Twitter/@Lekha250913991 So when a group of pro-India supporters arrived at the Khalistan referendum in Melbourne on Sunday, a usually family-friendly Federation Square became the centre of a wild brawl which left two men injured and innocent bystanders scrambling for safety. As police investigations continue, many questions have been raised by concerned community members about the groups involved and what led to the confronting scenes. Here’s news.com.au’s deep dive into the situation.   Why were these ethnic groups at Federation Square? Prior to the brawl, the day commenced peacefully as dozens of voters taking part in the referendum were seen queuing outside Federation Square from 8.30am. “The purpose of the referendum was to exercise the democratic right given to all humans by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of freedom of speech and expression,” Jaswinder Singh, CEO of Sikh Volunteers Australia told news.com.au. Melbourne’s referendum event was one of several non-binding referendums that have occurred globally in recent years, with others being held in the UK, Italy, Canada and Switzerland. It’s anticipated more will be hosted across Australian cities in some time. “By conducting a non-binding referendum in the whole world among the Sikh population, Sikhs want to convince the United Nations and the Western World that a binding referendum must be conducted in Punjab to liberate it from Indian occupancy,” Mr Singh said. Sikhs were asked to answer this yes or no question as part of the referendum. Picture: Twitter / @HindolSengupta Those taking part in the referendum were asked the yes-or-no question: “Should Indian Governed Punjab be an independent country?”. After submitting their vote, Sikhs around the polling place were seen waving Khalistan flags while sporting the colours yellow and blue. Voting was open until 5pm that evening. At the same time, it’s believed a small pro-India group who practiced Hinduism were protesting near the Botanical Gardens. At about 4.30pm, pro-India members who allegedly came from the Botanical Gardens protest, were spotted at Federation Square waving their national flag. While it’s still unclear what exactly caused the brawl, a violent clash soon broke out with members of both parties using their flags as weapons while others were forced to flee to safety. The larger altercation came just hours after a smaller dispute in the same area which Victoria Police said occurred shortly after midday.            
    • The problem is that apne think they have made it in life if they move to a gora area.  Likewise suls love to flock to where apne are, no apna ever moves to a predominantly sul area in this day and age.
