Rising Against All Dangerous Myths

BY: Dan Phale*

As I write this article my eyes are blurred with tears of commiseration, condolences, disbelief, empathy, fear, shock, and sympathy because of the hardships and/or deaths so far caused by other evil minded persons. And at the very end of the article I will ask all of you readers to rise up and take a very strong action.

About a week ago or so I and other fellow good countrymen got highly stunned having heard that a certain man had been sexually traumatizing a four year old girl child with an aim of getting rid of the HIV from his body. According to the media reports the man was acting on advice which he got from somebody who crookedly and fraudulently claimed to be a doctor… But in a sharp contrast, the man who currently is in custody of the State for defilement charges remains HIV positive. And the worst fact is that he has even infected the four year old girl child with the virus… What a pity…!

This reminds me of several other horrible issues surrounding the very innocent people getting inflicted with great pains, or even being brutally murdered and getting their private parts removed. Such stories have involved both men and women, more so with our dear friends and/or brothers and sisters with albinism. To the worst extent the heartless persons have all the insanity to sneak into the graveyards to exhume dead bodies… What for…?

Most recently the media reports have informed the public that all men with bald heads have become the targets of the brutal serial killers. And now great fear has taken full control of my being as I presume that tomorrow all men with huge tufts of beard – a group where I belong – will be the next target.

For the first time in my life I am prompted to develop a hostile mind against everybody who has a sign post written “Dr XXX“at his or her dwelling place… Ironically my copy of a dictionary says a doctor is the one who is skilled in medical sciences… I can very strongly speculate that these are the people who have been propagating and/or disseminating such dangerous myths that human body tissues could be used for healing purposes or for good luck. I really hate them… In fact it would be better if we had no such people among us, I suppose. They are the charlatans.

God did not create a person to be used as a raw material of medicinal products. Neither did He create a person to be used as a sacrifice for somebody’s good luck.

Let us rise up and do something to end the ordeal. Let nobody be cheated that human body tissues are a source of a better life… Nobody should be lured into believing that HIV can be removed from the blood streams by having sexual intercourse with a young baby. These are dangerous myths.
