This is really shocking! During a two-day Hindu festival in Nepal, hundreds of thousands of animals are slaughtered to bring good luck to the faithful.
Animal sacrifice is a crime. But this is still a common tradition. In Japan, dolphins are killed; in the Faroe Islands, whales are sacrificed.
And every five years, during the Gadhimaya festival held in Southern Nepal, approximately 250,000 animals are brutally killed in honor of the Hindu goddess of power, Gadhimaya.
Every five years, the village of Bariyapur, Nepal, becomes the largest massacre in the world during a two-day festival of sacrifices in honor of Gadhimaya, the Hindu goddess of power.
During this ceremony, up to a quarter of a million animals, from buffaloes to rats, are sacrificed at the Gadhimai Temple in the city of Bariyarpur in southern Nepal.
