Atheist Republic: India “Witch Hunters” Kill Mother and Four Children

8

The bodies of Mangri Munda and her children were found in a well near their home because of being accused as “witches”. A group of men broke into their home late at night when she and her 2 sons and 2 daughters were asleep. They attacked them with wooden sticks and an axe before dumping their bodies inside the well. The main accused who has been arrested claimed to be a “witch doctor”. Six people have been arrested in the eastern state of Orissa but police believe more people were involved in the crime. Branding women as witches is particularly prevalent among tribal communities in the state.

Hi, I want you guys to make a video on the exorcism rituals being practiced in mosques, temples and churches. There are a large number of such videos on YouTube itself. Can you react to them?
