Child sacrificed, liver offered to gods in India

A seven-year-old Indian girl was murdered in a tribal sacrifice and her liver offered to the gods to improve crop growth, police in the central state of Chhattisgarh said on Sunday.
The body of Lalita Tati was found in October one week after her family reported her missing.
“A seven-year-old girl was sacrificed by two persons superstitiously believing that the act would give a better harvest,” Narayan Das, the police chief of Bijapur district, told AFP by telephone.
The two men was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of killing the girl and offering her liver to the gods in a grisly tribal ceremony. Police said the men had confessed to the crime.
The girl was murdered in a jungle district of Chhattisgarh that is a stronghold of rebel Maoists who have tapped into disaffection among local tribal groups.
Human sacrifices occasionally make headlines in deeply religious and superstitious India, and usually occur in poor areas where some people revere practitioners of black magic.
Two suspected child sacrifices were reported in Chhattisgarh in 2010, while in the same year the decapitated body of a factory worker was found in a temple in the eastern state of West Bengal.
The victims are often ritually killed by witchdoctors to appease gods, spirits or deities.

    The farcical "shining" India is neither "democratic" nor "secular", so enough of this BS that is dished out! Do keep in mind the heavy influence of the right-wing hindu extremists in not only their mainstream politics, but the entire establishment as well! Shame and hypocrisy galore!

    One of the most screwed up countries on this planet, at least in terms of human rights or welfare of the poor – keeping in mind the farcical slogan of "Shining" India, as well as the BS of the "largest democracy" in the world, given that the insane right-wing hindu extremists dominate, or at least heavily influence, the country's overall establishment! Shame & hypocrisy galore!

    This is one unfortunate sacrifice by a forest-dwelling tribe who never studied in schools. In Pakistan, thousands are sacrificed every year in the name of a different God through suicide bombings, throat cutting and shooting-style execution conducted after chanting of religious war-cries by those who were educated in schools (called Madarsahs)
