Outrage in India over breastfeeding mother shamed by mall

Outrage has been caused in India after a woman was criticised for wanting to breastfeed her baby in a shopping mall.

The woman wrote a post on the Facebook page of the mall in the eastern city of Kolkata, asking why there was no designated feeding area.

Management of South City Mall responded by telling the woman she should do such "home chores" at home and "not in the mall".

The social media accounts of the mall have since been filled with furious responses and the management has apologised.
