Slumdog Dad says You Can’t Put A Price On Love (& Children)
There’s nothing like being a Daddy’s girl. You always get the biggest ice cream, unlimited rides on the “lap-horsie” and no boys ever think about pulling your ponytail for fear of being barbequed.
But for Slumdog Millionaire‘s Rubina Ali, Daddy isn’t quite the pillar of paternal values that he should be. In fact, he’s downright criminal. Rubina’s father Rafiq Qureshi has set the going rate for an Indian child at £200,000. Shocking no doubt, but who is really to blame for this grim bludgeoning of the human condition? A desperate father who was pushed to make a bitterly regrettable statement or an exploitative tabloid newspaper?
Thanks, News Of The World for unearthing this bleak, bitter truth. How does the fake sheik sleep at night knowing he is ruining people’s lives for petty financial gain? In this sickening tale of woe, there can be no winners.
