Nepalese woman accused of witchcraft and burned alive

Kathmandu, Nepal (CNN) -- A 40-year-old mother of two was burned alive in central Nepal after she was accused of being a witch, police said Saturday.
Dhegani Mahato was attacked and set on fire by family members and others after a shaman allegedly accused her of casting a spell to make one of her relatives sick, Police Officer Hira Mani Baral said.
The attack occurred Friday in Bagauda in Chitwan district, about 80 kilometers (50 miles) southwest of the Nepalese capital, Kathmandu, Baral said by telephone.
Police arrested 10 people, including two shamans, five women and an 8-year-old boy, in connection with the burning.
"Those arrested have confessed to their crime and will be charged with murder," Baral said.
Mahato had just finished cleaning a cowshed early in the morning when she was attacked, Baral said.
She was beaten with sticks and rocks before being doused with kerosene and set afire, an attack witnessed by her 9-year-old daughter, according to the local police report.
Neighbors told police they were alerted to the attack but by then it was too late to save her.
Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai appealed to the people not to heed to shamans and faith healers.
The government announced 1 million Nepalese rupees (about $14,000) in compensation for Mahato's two children.

Make a correction in your subject title. It should read "THEY" still burn people at the stake. We passed this phase over 300 years ago.

The belief in witches is fairly common in other parts of the world. You see, it's things like this that make me jaded towards my countrymen when they bitch for half a day about their iPhone taking too long to load YouTube. People don't even realize how good they have it.

Many "western" people just don't realize just how far in the past many parts of the world still linger.

Saw something on Nat. Geo about a tribe in the Amazon they think has still had no contact with the outside world. They have done documentaries on cannibalism in Papua New Guinea there are people still alive who remember it actively going on when they were children. I believe large parts of China's population still cook over fires fueled by dried dung.

Here people don't understand truly where food comes from. It happened FAST too, my wife's grandmother used to take the milk to town by horse, she passed away a couple years ago but if she were still alive she would only be in her later 90s.

In the idea of "we as the human race" still burn witches, it still applies. It does kind of reflect badly on us all.

But we as a race, don't. It is too broad a statement. Besides, I seriously don't consider those animals to be part of the human race.

It's all the same. 50 years from now people will say "man, I can't believe people back in 2012 didn't let gays marry" or something else.

The important thing is we're progressing. Some are just taking longer than others.

More like some CHOOSE not to. But I am not going to get this thread locked.
