Yes, you heard correctly, CNN host Reze Aslan ate human brains on his new show “Believer” in India with the Aghoris people.
While CNN is undoubtedly looking for ratings, they have just stooped to extremely disgusting new lows of actual cannibalism.
CNN boasts “this new spiritual adventure series, renowned author and religious scholar Reza Aslan immerses himself in the world’s most fascinating faith-based groups to experience life as a true believer.”
Reza Aslan learns why some fear the Aghora Hindu sect when he sits down with a bizarre guru covered in cremated ashes.
The Aghori are ascetic Shaiva sadhus. The Aghori are known to engage in post-mortem rituals. They often dwell in charnel grounds, have been witnessed smearing cremation ashes on their bodies, and have been known to use bones from human corpses for crafting kapalas (skullcups which Shiva and other Hindu deities are often iconically depicted holding or using) and jewelry.
Because of their practices that are contradictory to orthodox Hinduism, they are generally opposed by other Hindus.
Yet CNN is ready to dive in to the taboo world in an attempt to salvage itself from failing ratings and being labeled as ‘Fake News’.
Also strange is how in recent times very sadistic taboos seem to be almost pushed by main stream media and Hollywood, people flirting with the ideas of cannibalism, pedophilia, BDSM, beastiality themes alike.
Mark Dice also has an interesting video about this horrible taboo.
