Heartless! Kolkata Mom Not Allowed to Breastfeed Publicly Inside Five Star South City Mall

The City of Joy has been Shamed Once Again.

A young mom in Kolkata faced humiliation and insult at a five star city mall on Sunday evening when she was not allowed to breastfeed her hungry seven-month-old child in a suitable place. She was told to do breastfeed her child in washroom, not in the public place.

After this embarrassment, Abhilasha Paul went home and mentioned it in a Facebook rating of the mall in question – South City Mall – that went viral and support was coming from all part of the society. A support group – Breastfeeding Support of Indian Mothers – is now planning to hold a peaceful “nurse-in” outside the mall by breastfeeding mothers to raise awareness.

Recalling the incident, she told – last Sunday evening she visited the mall with her sister-in-law and daughter. When her daughter started crying, she realised that the child need to be fed.  But she could not find a place to sit and feed her child. So she asked the security personnel if there is any suitable place for breastfeeding. “Every time I was told I would have feed the child inside the toilet. There was no other place inside, I was told,”
