I forced myself to watch the video and felt sick to my stomach, that anybody would step back and watch their child subjected to this horrifying abuse.
When people are willing to believe superstitious nonsense, that holds power over them, which in turn let’s them suspend reason; and these sorts of barbaric acts are the inevitable consequence.
A village witch doctor has been arrested in India after footage emerged of a supposed healing ceremony she carried out on a 2 day old baby in the village of Morigoan in India.
IB Times UK reports that the parents of the baby took him to the witch doctor due to the child having high fever. The method of treatment involved the witch doctor holding the child by the scruff of the neck and forcing him to walk, a 2 day old!
And how forcing the child to walk would contribute to the healing I have no idea.
Video of the incident was taken by a bystander, who shared it with authorities who came to stop the inhuman incident. Amazingly, whilst this quack ceremony drew a crowd no one made any attempt to stop it.
The child was taken to hospital, and is now well and recovering. Really how difficult is it to know that you take a sick child to the hospital and not to a pastor or healer; and especially not a witchdoctor!
Watch the horrifying, sickening video below…
