Why are Indian women’s bodies so ugly?
The news was published in the Indian Express newspaper on January 19, 2018.
The paper reported that in 2014, India had the third highest number of cases of female genital mutilation (FGM) cases in the world, with 2,746 reported cases in 2017.
However, the paper also reported that a large number of Indian women are opting for cosmetic surgery.
India’s Minister of Health Dr Jyoti Bhattacharya told the newspaper that “the number of women undergoing surgery in India is increasing.
It is happening more and more often in our population.
It’s not a problem that affects just women.”
She also added that India is one of the few countries in the developed world that does not allow FGM, and there are restrictions on the procedure.
Bhattachary also said that the health ministry was working on ways to “ensure that we can provide safe and appropriate medical care to all patients regardless of their gender.”
