You think that human sacrifce was long, lost practice of dark ages of long ago. If it was still practiced today, it would be practiced in some backwater part of Boreno or an undiscovered part of the Amazon.

Actually, there is a case of human sacrifice in one of the world fastest growing economies. In India, somebody was sacrificed to appease some evil, pagan god. Here are the details are reported by the Indian-Asian news


A priest and three others have been arrested for allegedly sacrificing an old woman to appease a tribal god in Jharkhand’s Latehar district, police said.<
Budhani Devi, 60, a resident of Khaira Jagir village, was abducted April 9 by Bhuneshwar Baiga, the priest, and his accomplices — Balram Mistry, Basuwa Oraon and Mahendra Singh.

"Prima facie, it appears the tribal priest instigated people to abduct Budhani and later she was sacrificed," a police official from the district told IANS.

Budhani's son Kundan Oraon, who set off to search for his mother, Wednesday found his mother's clothings and bangles near a forest and enquired about her whereabouts from nearby villagers.

When he discovered that she had been sacrificed by the four men to appease a local tribal god, Pasa Gamhel, he immediately informed the police and the accused were arrested.

"Bhuneshwar has admitted that he killed my mother along with three other people to appease the god. We have handed over all four to police," Kundan told reporters outside the police station Wednesday.

In Jharkhand, 11 cases of human sacrifices have been reported in the last seven years.

This shows the insanity of some people’s view of their higher power. I just do not understand how people imagine their higher powers to be such blood-thirsty beings. Maybe, this higher-power is a reflection of the people’s nature as wanting to be savage. Or maybe this higher power is truly demonic and is part of an evil spirit such as the devil himself (Christian) or some other entity. I favor that the higher power was man-made but who knows. Do you really think this the devil himself or just a man-made invention
