Den mørke middelalder lever i bedste velgående

Fra den pragtfulde mangfoldige verden, hvor religion borger for en etik, som ateister og andet godtfolk slet, slet ikke kan hamle op med:

Five women were paraded naked, beaten and forced to eat human excrement by villagers after being branded as witches in India's Jharkhand state.

Local police said the victims were Muslim widows who had been labelled as witches by a local cleric.

The incident occurred on Sunday in a remote village in Deoghar district.

Correspondents say the abuse of women who are branded as witches is common, but rare footage of the incident has caused outrage across India.

Police went to Pattharghatia village after being informed about the incident by a group of villagers...

"No one in the mob came forward to rescue the victims as they were being stripped and beaten up," he said.

The victims are now under police protection.

Police say that people in Pattharghatia believe that certain women in their village are possessed by a "holy spirit" that can identify those who practise witchcraft.
Teknologien er flyttet derud, derfor optagelsen. Men den moderne mentalitet lader vente på sig.
