This is really shocking!
During a two-day Hindu festival in Nepal, hundreds of thousands of animals are butchered to bring worshippers good luck. Warning: the following images and videos are graphic!
And every five years, during the Gadhimai festival held in southern Nepal, approximately 250,000 animals are brutally killed to honor the Hindu goddess of power, Gadhimai.
Every five years, the village of Bariyapur, Nepal becomes the largest slaughterhouse in the world during a two-day sacrifice festival in honour of Gadhimai, the Hindu goddess of power.
During this ceremony, up to a quarter million animals, ranging from buffalo to rat, are sacrificed at the Gadhimai Temple of Bariyarpur, in southern Nepal.
The animals are put inside a ‘stadium’ and excited pilgrims climb trees and walls to look at the sinister spectacle.
Some 200 butchers with sharpened swords and knives walk into the walled arena bigger than a football field and start killing.
In the latest editions of the festival (2019, 2014 and 2009, up to 250,000 animals were slaughtered.
With all my respect, I think this cruel and bloody Hindu sacrifice ritual in Nepal should be banned! What’s your point on this? More absurd mass killings on Strange Sounds or Steve Quayle. [AlJazeera, Daily Mail]
