Bangalore: Spiritual guru Sri Sri
Ravishankar on Wednesday asked doctors to take the lead in curbing
the rapidly rising menace of sex-selection, saying it is their
duty to create awareness among those who are practising this
"wrong habit for monetary gains".
Speaking on the importance of girl child, he said
according to our scriptures killing a girl is equal to killing
thousand saints.

"Girls today are no less than boys. In fact, they care
much more for their parents than boys and also have an equal
right of performing the last rights of their parents," he told
a workshop -- Doctors for Daughters: Faith in Action Against
Sex Selection -- here.
