Bloody Faith! (Warning:Graphic images)

Ashura. The tenth day of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calender. This date is important to Shi’a Muslims because of the anniversary of the death of Husain, the grandson of Muhammad. During the self-flagellation ceremony, men beat themselves, hit their backs with chained knives and cut their heads with swords as they mourn.

Far more terrible is parents make their children bleed.

Imam Husain fought with Yazid ibn Muawiya in 680 CE for power. Husain was killed in the battle. But people still mourn for Husain. They physically torture themselves for the sake of their faith. The madness continues.

    If those idiots were doing it solely to themselves, like the Filipinos at “easter”, I’d just sit and laugh at them. It makes me wonder if communicable diseases get passed around with all that blood, causing their own problems to get worse.

    But abusing children as part of the “ritual” is beyond revolting. Those kids need to be rescued and taken away from such people.

    Einstein once said “Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the one.”
