The daughter of the President of Kyrgyzstan has posted pictures of herself breastfeeding to show she will not be stopped by the haters.

 

Aliya Shagieva, 20, is the youngest daughter of Almazbek Atambayev, 60, who has led the mostly Muslim country since December 2011.

 

But she has sparked controversy in the conservative country by posting snaps of herself breastfeeding her newborn.

 

Mrs Shagieva, who married her husband Konstantin last September, maintained a low public profile before her wedding and had not commented on her pregnancy until almost going into labour, when she posted a snap of herself in her underwear to show off her baby bump.

 

The picture sparked a row among the more traditional members of society who said it was wrong for a woman to show off her body.

 

In response she said: "Norms, ideas about not being modest are blurred, and can change depending on the culture, time and other factors.

 

"This is why it is pointless to argue about those. How could we know what will be socially acceptable in a few generations?"

 

She has since posted a picture of her breastfeeding her new son Tagir, and said she will not be stopped.

 

She said: "In this post I would like to share my thoughts on one of two people’s mistakes who likes advising things online. Mistake number one: sexualising of female breasts. Mistake number two: discrimination of people, whose parents, who hold a high position.

 

"Long time ago people have forgotten the real purpose of female breasts and made it into an object that satisfied men’s eyes.

 

"Society makes breasts into a sexual object, and attractiveness and later judges women that use plastic surgeries because their breasts are too small/big or are of different shape."

 

But the picture has received criticism from members of the country, which is 80 percent Muslim.

 

One netizen, named ‘a.raimbekoff', said: "I feel sorry for your husband and father (and your brothers - but this is optional). It is a shame that these have no authority over you, that they let you slip to that. If they support you in this, that means that they are now the so-called pseudomen."

 

Another, named ‘these_are_all_handmade’, added: "Forget about her boobs, let her breastfeed. What I really dislike on this picture that she is only wearing her knickers."
