Doused in kerosene and set alight

What’s the difference between a Nepalese Shaman and a Christian Priest?


Note: This insane shaman and superstitious celebrity unrelated to the news article below.

Exhibit A:

KATHMANDU — A mob burned alive a 40-year-old woman on Friday after accusing her of casting black magic spells in a remote village in southern Nepal, police said.

Dengani Mahato died after she was severely beaten, doused in kerosene and set alight for allegedly practising witchcraft, Gopal Bhandari, a superintendent of police in Chitwan district, told AFP.

“Nine people started to beat her after a local shaman pointed the finger at her over the death of a boy a year ago,” the officer said.

Exhibit B:

On November 20 Pastor Samuel Fletcher Sagoe accused Ama Ahima of being a witch. Sagoe gathered together a group of six people (including other members of his family) to “deliver” Ahima, that is to conduct an exorcism. Alternatively, this has been described as an effort to forcibly make Ahima “confess” through torture. The exorcism (and/or attempt to extract a confession) proceeded for several hours, until Ahima was doused in kerosene and set on fire.


Picture unrelated.
