Tossing Babies From Temple Roofs Gets Government Attention…Finally!

In Human Rights, India on December 11, 2009 at 7:28 am

The first time we saw this, our stomachs churned. It is inhuman, dangerous and barbaric, aside from being a stunning display of ignorance. That whole “its been around for centuries, so it must be okay” argument is unacceptable. Unless the ignoramus’ that conduct this ‘festival’ can prove consent by the newborns and young babies being thrown off roofs, that argument has to be thrown off the roof too.

We’re glad the Karnataka Child Protection Right agencies are stepping in…Finally.

No news of any attempts to stop this one below – a video from another baby tossing event in Bijapur, Maharastra.
