Throwing babies off tall buildings "for good health"
Granted, it was a soft landing, but still.
Muslims in western India have been observing a bizarre ritual - they've been throwing their young children off a tall building to improve their health, writes Reuters.The faithful have been observing the ritual at a shrine in Solapur, in western India's Maharastra, for more than five hundred years. They believe it will make their children strong and say no accidents have ever happened.
I think it's time Islam hired a global PR agency to deal with all their publicity crisis. This one is no crowd pleaser, either.
