Pakistani Game Show Gives Abandoned Babies as Prize in Honor of Ramadan


babyA popular Pakistani game show is now giving away abandoned babies as prizes.

Two baby girls have been given away to two couples, and a baby boy will soon be another jackpot on the show, which is broadcast live for seven hours a day during the month of Ramadan, CNN reported Tuesday.

Aamir Liaquat Hussain, host of a game show that’s been dubbed Pakistan’s version of The Price Is Right, defended the human prizes.

Hussain said,”For us Ramadan is a really special time so it’s really important to make people happy and reward them.”

Audience members win prizes for answering questions on the Quran.

“I was really shocked at first. I couldn’t believe we were being given this baby girl,” Suriya Bilqees said of a two-week-old infant she’s now caring for. “I was extremely happy.”

Another new mother gushed that her infant was a “gift of Ramadan,” the Mirror in London reported.

“These 14 years were full of hardships…but I remained patient and also asked my wife to be patient,” her husband, Riaz-ud-din said, the Mirror reported.

The babies were found by the Chhipa Welfare Association, a non-governmental organization.
