No God expects anybody to torture self for atonement, Madras HC on Parakkum Kavadi

Meera Emmanuel February 12 2019

The Madras High Court recently made an earnest plea to give up faith-based practices that involve bodily torture.

"After all no God is expecting from anybody to torture his own body for atonement", said Justice N Seshasayee.

The judge made the appeal while dealing with a petition filed to allow the conduct of a Parakkum Kavadi procession to a temple in Madurai.
