Horrific baby throwing tradition from India

Mumbai :

Sometimes it is unbelievable and more than horrific to know some rituals in Indian traditions. One of them is baby throwing in states like Karnataka and Maharashtra.

A priest chants some words then throws toddlers from a certain feet height to a blanket hold by few men. As soon as the toddler lands on it, a man grabs him and gives it to the mother. The practise can be noticed in both Hindus and Muslims.

Apparently, this tradition exists in India for more than 700 years from now. Check out this horrifying video, shot in the village of Harangal, Maharashtra.
