India: Charge against holy man a load of balls, says guru
These balls, to be exact.
An Indian holy man has castrated himself in an apparent protest against the arrest of a popular spiritual leader on sex charges.
Baba Premdas, 60, was found bleeding late on Wednesday in northern Uttar Pradesh state after severing his genitals in what reports said was a protest at last week’s arrest of Asaram Bapu, a self-styled Hindu holy man.
“Why he did it is not clear. Some say it was because of Bapu’s arrest, some say it was because he feared ending up in Bapu’s situation. No one knows,” said Alankrita Singh, chief of police of the city of Amethi.
Religion. For when all the other reasons sound even more stupid.
