India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his severe Hindu backers are making some incredible claims about science.
Indian nationalists market something worse than snake oil. It’s the The Cow Dung Treatment for Coronavirus
Swami Chakrapani Maharaj, president of the Hindu Mahasabha– a century-old organization that promotes Hindutva (or “Hinduness”)– stated that “ consuming cow urine and cow dung will stop the impact of transmittable coronavirus”
The swami added that a ” person who shouts ‘om namah shivay’ and applies cow dung” on his body “will be saved.“ The Sanskrit chant is a salutation to Shiva, a Hindu divine being.
The swami is a prominent figure in hard-line Hindu circles and has an ideological affinity with Mr. Modi.
Since the Hinduist Bharatiya Janata Party, or BJP, rose to national power in 2014, its views have actually infiltrated books and even scientific discourse. Mr. Modi has suggested that ancient Indians had test-tube babies. Mentioning the case of Karna– a hero of the “Mahabharata,” a Hindu legendary from the third century B.C.– Mr. Modi told a gathering of medical professionals in 2014 that because Karna was “not born from his mom’s womb”( in Mr. Modi’s version of the misconception), this needed to imply that “hereditary science was present at the time.” Referring to Ganesha, the elephant-headed god, he stated, there “must have been some cosmetic surgeon at that time who got an elephant’s head on the body of a human being.“
Mr. Modi is too smart to believe all this.
India’s Path of Ruin
India is on the path of destruction with Modi in charge.
This is yet another example that reveals the value of separation of church and state.
