The father of Rubina, the star of Slumdog Millionaire is in the news for the past couple of days for trying to sell his daughter.
According to various news reports (most of them conflicting with each other), he has been meeting people from the Middle East who want to “adopt” his daughter.
This is so sad and disheartening to read. We all know what is actually going on here. I just don’t believe that the man is so naive that he actually think it is for her own good.
I am not even sure whether to take a judgment call on this. It is technically very easy for me having lived a fairly comfortable life to condemn the man without knowing his circumstances. But reading and worse seeing the photos in this article really made me sick!
