World’s ’largest animal sacrifice’ starts in Nepal despite ’ban’

World’s ’largest animal sacrifice’ starts in Nepal despite ’ban’

Nepal’s Hindu festival where thousands of animals are sacrificed to a goddess began on Tuesday despite calls to end the bloodshed. Held every five years, the two-day Gadhimai festival kicked off at a temple in Bariyarpur with the ceremonial slaughter of five different animals and birds. The festival is taking place despite a Supreme Court ruling that the government should discourage the bloodshed.

I don't see any problem with this, personally, beyond the superstition. The animals are not wasted.

We're so much more civilized in the West. Xtians drinking symbolic "blood" and "body" while communing with their god. Ritual cannibalism is acceptable and revered. Carried out by shamans wearing ceremonial robes in purpose built temples. Oh, and don't forget the magic involved in getting from wine and wafers to blood and body. Let's talk about stones and glass houses.

there apparently was no ban.. "Devout Hindus could be requested not to offer animal sacrifice to the goddess, but they could not be forced not to do so - nor [could] the tradition be banned or stopped completely," he said at the time. ... I would at least hope they're having a big bbq after 😋

While speaking up about the ANNUAL Islamic 'Festival of Sacrifice' where goats, cows, camels and sheep are slaughtered in the streets all across the Muslim world might be considered Islamophobic.

Yeah, that's what your "god" wants... more bloodshed. Hinduism is satanic in nature though

If not seeing it for empathy to the animals, see it as a poor country overusing resources due to a tradition. Still an idiotic move.
