India: Outrage As Mall Shames Woman For Breastfeeding

There has been outrage in India after the management of a shopping centre in the eastern city of Kolkata told a mum wanting to breastfeed her baby not to do such “home chores” in the centre, the BBC has reported.

The comments were made on Facebook after the woman wrote a post on South City Mall’s page complaining that there was no designated feeding area, the BBC said.

The “home chores” response brought angry responses from members of the public who asserted that it was tantamount to shaming the mother.

South City Mall blamed a social media agency forĀ  what it described as the “rude” post.
