30 million took holy dip. 30 died.

30 people were killed in a stampede at Kumbh, the Hindu religious festival.

30 million Hindus took dip at the confluence of Ganges, Yamuna and the mythical as well as invisible Saraswati believing to have their sins washed away. More than 30 people died in a stampede at Kumbh. God should have saved the lives of devotees. Some children died too. Why did God kill them?

Many people die in stampedes at Kumbh and Hajj.

I am so lucky! I do not need to go to kaba or Kumbh, because I do not commit sins.


The more sins you commit, the more your fears grow.

Hindus believe some rivers in India are holy, even though those rivers are dangerously polluted. Many famous artists, writers, film makers, filthy rich were at Kumbh today. They believe their sins will be washed away if they immerse themselves in those so called holy rivers. Kumbh is like Kaba, Muslims believe if their perform hajj by orbiting kaba, all their sins will be forgiven.

If most people in the world were sane, religion would have been dead long ago.
