Religious belief kills a 13 year old girl by imposed fasting

All religious rituals are useless but some are very dangerous. A child brought up under Jainism was killed by such a ritual.

 A 13-year-old Jain girl died in the Hyderabad,India  after observing a 68-day fast.
The girl, Aradhana, observed the ‘Chaturmas’ fast to bring good luck to her family. Her father, Laxmichand Sansadiya, had recently suffered huge loss in his jewellery business.
A Chennai-based priest had advised the girl’s parents to ask their daughter to observe the ‘Chaturmas’ fast in order to recover from the loss in business and earn huge profits.
