There are reports that witchcraft related child abuse is on the rise in London.. For example, as NBC starts their report with, this:
Kevani Kanda was just six years old when her family accused her of being a witch. She was being molested by a relative and the trauma made her wet the bed and sleepwalk.
But instead of trying to find out what was wrong, Kanda’s family were convinced she was possessed by an evil spirit. For the next five years, she was starved, forced to eat her own vomit, beaten repeatedly and given suppositories containing spices to “get rid of the evil spirits.” And the torture occurred in a London suburb.
The story of Kanda is horrid and disgusting.. But is it evidence of a bigger issue taking place? London’s Metropolitan Police announced this week that reports of abuse where the child is accused of being a witch or possessed by an evil spirit are on the rise..
The Satanic Panic of the 1980s is back..
This new version has a witches brew..
