In a shocking incident, a 28-year-old man named Misbahu Salisu has been arrested for allegedly poisoning his day-old daughter. The reason behind this horrific act was his preference for a male child. This incident took place in Doka Baici, Tofa Local Government Area, and the man was apprehended by the Kano State Hisbah Board.
The Kano State Hisbah Board announced the arrest of Misbahu Salisu in a statement issued in Kano by the Deputy Commander General, Operations, Dr. Mujahid Aminudeen. The board took immediate action upon learning about the crime and ensured that the man responsible was brought to justice.
Misbahu Salisu’s preference for a male child led him to commit this heinous act. Instead of cherishing the birth of his daughter, he resorted to poisoning her. This act of violence and discrimination is deeply disturbing and goes against the values of love and respect for all human life.
It is crucial to understand that every child, regardless of their gender, deserves love, care, and equal opportunities. Gender equality means treating boys and girls with the same respect and providing them with the same opportunities to thrive and succeed in life.
Gender discrimination can have severe consequences for individuals and society as a whole. It perpetuates harmful stereotypes, limits opportunities, and creates an environment of inequality. It is essential to challenge and overcome these biases to build a fair and inclusive society.
The tragic incident of a father killing his newborn daughter due to a preference for a male child is a stark reminder of the importance of gender equality. Every child deserves to be valued and cherished, regardless of their gender. It is our collective responsibility to promote a society where every individual is treated with respect and given equal opportunities to thrive.
