Why are those meaningless rituals still in practice?We are in the 21st century and science and technology has developed a lot. The life style has changed a lot. Still in this period there are people who practice the meaningless rituals hurting themsleves and offering to sacrifice something they like or animal sacrifice. Why can't we still understand that God is just the faith and he never asks us for such things.
I have recently seen a post in facebook where a kid around 5 year old was pierced lemons on its body. I cannot imagine how much pain the child would have undergone. This is rediculous to believe that our wishes come true by doing such acts. If that is true then everyone can bare that pain for sometime and get everything they want in life. Why can't people understand that doing such things will never change the fate of anybody? Please share your views about this.
