Pakistan to make cannibalism illegal after two brothers caught making curry from corpses

Unbelievably, it is not illegal in Pakistan to eat human bodies. This should finally be changing after repeated acts of cannibalism by two brothers there, who made the meat into a stewed curry.

According to the Daily Mail, after neighbors complained of a stench coming from their home, police arrested “cannibal brothers Mohammad Arif Ali, 35, and Mohammad Farman Ali, 30, who allegedly dug up more than 100 corpses from the local graveyard in order to eat them, in April this year.” The corpse of a 24-year old woman was found in their house in 2011, and the  head of a three-year-old boy in 2013.

The proposed law will ban  “exhuming a human body  ‘with intent to cook, eat, sell or to use for magic purposes’ and making consumption of human flesh punishable.” Eating human flesh would be punishable by seven years in prison, and robbing graves for such purposes by 10 years.

The fact we live in the modern, civilized era, yet such depraved acts are still taking place, is evidence of how much God has been removed from society. Without a firm moral compass, many today have no conscience, being taught that anything goes as long as it feels good. Since the humans are dead, how is it really hurting anyone, goes the argument.  As is apparent here, we’re on a dangerous slippery slope using that kind of reasoning.
