Pakistani ‘Price Is Right’ Gives Babies As Prizes in Outrageous Stunt
The royal baby isn’t the only newborn who was on display this month.
A game show in Pakistan called ‘Amaan Ramazan’ has raised eyebrows around the world by giving two babies as prizes to a pair of couples without kids.
The tykes in question had been left on the streets and rescued by a welfare organization that handed them over to the show.
‘Amaan Ramazan,’ considered to be the “Islamic ‘Price Is Right,’” pulled the stunt as a ratings gimmick during the holy month of Ramadan.
During one episode, the host told the audience, “This is the beautiful girl who was thrown on pile of garbage by somebody. See how beautiful and innocent she is.”
The group that ‘donated’ the child said, “We have lots of babies that are just abandoned, left in the garbage or other dirty places. Often we just find the bodies so our message that we make is to tell people to bring their babies to us, don’t just leave them.”
You can see a clip of one of the babies on the show, below. It’s not in English, but you’ll still get the point.
