Bihar woman refuses to accept baby born with deformity, says he looks like an alien

A mother in Bihar rejected her baby born with deformity but has seen many visitors who are of the view that the baby is a reincarnation of a Hindu god.

Khalida Begum, a mother of four, gave birth to the baby on Monday, according to a Mirror report.
The 35-year-old woman was shocked upon seeing her baby with a small head and his bulging eyes.

A baby boy born with an extremely rare genetic condition has been called an 'alien' by his mother. She also refused to breastfeed him initially.

"Several body parts of the baby is not completely developed. When I saw the baby after delivery for the first time, I was completely shocked to see the alien-looking boy. I was so shocked and saddened by this that I asked the midwife to take the baby out of my sight," a Zee News report quotes Khalida as saying.


According to the local reports, the doctors have claimed that the newborn has been diagnosed with an extremely rare genetic condition called harlequin ichthyosis. The condition gives the person thick skin and the features are rendered deformed.

Experts are also speculating that the boy might be suffering from another rare defect called Anencephaly.

Even though Khalida rejected her baby, the locals, including boy's father Mohammad Imtiyaz, are of the view that he might be a reincarnation of a Hindu god.
