When Guns are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have Tantric Witchcraft

salem-witch-trialsWhy is it that, when looked at it closely, the exotic Mysteries of the East™ often seem to break down more like plain, everyday, ate-up crime?

In Assam, they parted out a kid, to try to appease the gods and bring back the missing cargo, namely a mobile phone. The Washington Post:

On Oct. 24, a 4-year-old girl went missing from her home in the Charaideo district of upper Assam, a mostly tribal state in northeast India.

Last Monday, the child’s body was found in a forest about 75 to 90 yards from the Ratanpur tea estate where she lived with her parents. She had been decapitated and her arms had been severed.

Both her arms and her head were found scattered near the body on the forest floor.

The horrific dismembering was allegedly the result of a 14-year-old girl, who lived in the same village, losing her mobile phone.

Wanting it back, her parents — Hanuman Bhumij and his wife, Many Bhumij — turned to black magic, police said.

As Prasanta Phukan, an inspector in charge of the Sonari Police Station in Assam, told The Washington Post, many in the remote tribal area are uneducated and steeped in superstition.

They conducted a prayer ritual that Phukan said was performed by Gul Mhammad Ali, also known as Gulam, a tantric, or black witch priest, in the village.

With Gulam were his nephew Hajrat Ali and another assistant, Ariful Haqmulla.

Hot tip, Jackson: if your god makes a request that involves the dismemberment of a child, whatever that thing is, God it is not.

Read The Whole Thing™ for a whole array of weird behavior under influence (or excuse) of witchcraft, each one more disgusting, degenerate, and depraved than the last.

    Hmm, several familiar names in that group of suspects. Could just be local naming ritual or maybe some influence of “The Relgion of Peace”.

      Hanuman is a distinctively Hindu name. You’ll find that “Islam” coexists somewhat peacefully with indigenous religions across Asia and Africa (north of about mid-Nigeria) mostly as a part of a stew of magic and animism.

      This type of “Islam” would be unrecognizable to ISIS and their fellow travelers, nor with what you read in comparative religion books, but it may actually be the predominant form of Islam worldwide.

    Bad news, Hognose:

    ‘Some time afterward, God put Abraham to the test and said to him: Abraham! “Here I am!” he replied. Then God said: Take your son Isaac, your only one, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah. There offer him up as a burnt offering on one of the heights that I will point out to you.’ (Genesis 22:1-2)

    Or Good News indeed, depending on how you look at it.

        We know that now that he’s come down the mountain. He didn’t know that when he went up it.

          Gen 22, vs 5 indicates Abraham knew he’d be coming back with the boy. And in vs 7 Abraham prefigures the concept of a substitutionary sacrifice.

    So, did she get her phone back?

    Personally I always check the couch cushions first, but differently vibrant cultures and all that.

          Nope.

          Google it and go down that rabbit hole.

          It really makes you wonder what else that crew is involved in.

    Me, I’m just constantly scratching my head about the news out of that region.

    A few months ago a muslim kid in Pakistan accidentally put his hand up in class to indicate that he didn’t believe in Allah. Realising his mistake, he immediately went home and cut the offending hand off in a giant farming scythe. He was immediately praised for his solid devoutness by his local community.

    Such thoughts and actions are so alien to me that the place seems like it’s largely inhabited by, well, aliens. Honour killing, acid throwing, untouchables and all the rest of that shit…the entire region is a vortex of lunacy.

    My partner and I have discussed this. There are places we never want to go to, and India is top of the list.

      My GF who has traveled more than anybody I’ve ever heard of, really likes India, but I’m with you. Also the rest of S.Asia and entire Middle East, except Oman which is a really cool place to visit.
      As to religion, primitive or otherwise, beyond a prayer in a foxhole you can keep it.

        Jordan’s pretty cool, among ME places. Then again, three of my SF bros just got whacked there, so maybe things are changing

      Some regions just continue to exist in the past, when things unimaginable to us now were the norm and human life held little value compared to other things. This time gap may have decades, hundreds and sometimes thousand years. To not be overly complacent one must just remind the views and deeds praised as virtuous in some highly cultured societies before and during the World War II. The most unsettling thing is our morality and integrity never quite matches the tools and weapons we have at our disposal. Romans had to work their asses off to commit genocide by starving, selling or hacking people to pieces with the sword, later admirers of roman salute got trains, machineguns and gas chambers. Future crusades and jihads will be most probably performed with WMDs.

    Morrokko,
    The Hutus were only able to kill 500,000 or so Tustsi ( and moderate Hutu) with machetes in a few months
    Isis wants to kill all non Sunni Moslems in the entire world
    That is at least 6 billion people! All of China, almost all India.
    How do they plan to do that? Even with atomic weapons
    They need to think it through

      >Isis wants to kill all non Sunni Moslems
      Are you sure about that? Sure the reward is supposedly in Paradise and all that, but I’d bet a left kidney* (someone’s left kidney at any rate, not necessarily mine) that the average Mohammed or Iqbal in the ranks wouldn’t mind having some nice slaves in this life. After all someone’s gotta do the shit work and while goats have their undoubted charms, they can’t do your housework for you.

      >All of China
      Good luck. Between Chinese racism/ethnocentrism, pragmatism and general hardheaded (though penny pinching) ruthlessness, if the “war” comes to China they won’t be hindered by lilac-scented ROEs or handwringing over “what have we done to make them hate us so?”

      *The left kidney tends to be bigger. [insert joke here] #medical_imaging_geekery

    “Bloody wogs.” – said every British gentleman for the last 300 years.

    And then, I remembered the Planned Parenthood videos.
    Pretty sure no one was getting a cell phone out of the deal.
