Different religious beliefs and customs around the world may at times seem unusual, or even disgusting to many people. Take for instance the Etoro Tribe in Papua New Guinea. Their religious practices would make most people squeamish. It seems however that they are not the only religion or religious sect that can have that affect on people. The Aghori Baba is one such religious sect who’s activities may shock most people. It’s because the Aghori Baba can be seen eating dead bodies.
The Aghori Baba are a Hindu sect who mainly reside in India. They are well known for deviating from traditional Hindu practices and Indian social norms, often facing harsh criticism within India. It’s many of their religious practices, and eating their dead in particular, that upsets many people in India. So this begs the question, why? Why will the Aghori Baba start eating dead a body?
