Witch Beatings in India

BBC South Asia is carrying the story of witch beatings in India. Five widows were accused of witchcraft, taken to a public place, stripped, beaten, and forced to eat shit.

What is interesting, is that when one watches the video of this incident, one sees that the perpetrators of the violence are women.

So, which is witch?

Whenever I see a helpless individual set upon by an ignorant mob, it causes me to think specially of the matter.

Women are oppressed worldwide because they think they can get ahead by throwing each other under the bus. They don't stick together like men do - easily divided, easily conquered.
