We shall discuss the plight of t...he " Witch Children of Africa" tortured and disfigured and in some cases killed in the name of religion. Condoning or ignoring violence and intolerance is acquiescence even if we are not directly involved. If it is done in the name of your faith, you are involved. African spirituality proclaims in Igbo,"Madu Bu chi ibeya" we are God to each other", South African "Ubuntu", I am because of you and you because of me, Yoruba says"one going to take a pointed stick to pinch a baby bird should first try it on himself to feel how it hurts". Jainism reminds its followers " that a man shall wander about treating all creatures as he himself would be treated" and in Christian scriptures, Jesus said,"Whatever you neglected to do unto one of the least of these, you neglected to do unto Me!" So it is in all world religions. If these are your beliefs, then you should listen to this show and assess if the people of Eket Nigeria and the Congo are meeting these spiritual edicts and how you can respond to it. Women and children in these parts fall victim because most are unable to do much to protect themselves. Come hear, make recommendations and act. Regardless of your faith, stepping into the arena to initiate change is what it means to be people of faith!
