AsalamuALaykum Warahmatullahi Waarakatuh Wa Maghfiratuh,

How can a mere myth ruin the lives of thousands of children? In Pakistan, microcephalics - babies born with abnormally small heads - are known as 'rats' and credited with god-like powers. Believers will give them money in the hope of blessings, but unscrupulous gangs of beggars are now exploiting this ancient tradition for their own ends. They kidnap young 'rat' children - or frighten parents into handing them over - and then force them into a lifetime of begging on the streets. They are lucrative - so much so that some people allege that normal babies are being deliberately deformed to look like microcephalics. Why else, they ask, are there so many such children in Pakistan? And until something is done to combat the myth, the helpless 'rat' children will be condemned to a life of abuse.

Its so sad to see what people make of innovations into, and what people will do for money. This proves the point that the so called sufis, peers etc, introduce these innovations to people under the guise of Islam just for worldly purposes.

BBC's caught out with their lies...

"One has heard that these children are sold from anywhere between 40,000 - which is approximately 10 dollars - to 80,000 rupees per child" she says. "On average they will be able to make, through begging, around 400 to 500 rupees a day, which makes it a very lucrative business considering that's twice the amount a civil servant makes."
40,000 rupees is approximately 400 British pounds sterling, how can the be equal to 10 dollars.

It was a rather distasteful gag.

Still, I'm sure somebody will or has already written a book about this sort of thing.

I can understand this had this happened in India (being a predominantly hindu idol and animal worshipping country). Its sad to see so many stupid cultural issues being prevalent in a supposedly muslim country like pakistan.

Talking about India, you know they have a temple for rats?!!
