Pakistani Game Show's Baby Giveaway

Orphaned infants are being given away as prizes on a TV game show in Pakistan, prompting both condemnation and praise of the show and the organization behind the scheme.
Pakistan’s “Aman Ramazan,” airing for seven hours a day during the month of Ramadan (which ends August 7) in front of a live studio audience of 500-plus, has been likened to “The Price Is Right,” awarding prizes such as refrigerators, microwaves and motorcycles to people who correctly answer questions about the Quran. Now host Aamir Liaquat Hussain has been able to add babies to that list of rewards, so far giving away two infant girls to two unsuspecting couples, CNN reports.
