Rubel Sheikh, the man was so religious,he, and his mother traveled to the Muslim Khan Jahan Ali shrine,in Bangladesh, where hundreds of people visit every day to offer hens and goats to the crocodiles living there. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,408683,00.html It is said that the animals generally don't harm them, but this fella was not lucky.. Converting this news to a discussion of mylot, i ask you are you brave enough to bath, in the pond (river) if you know in advance that it has Croc's in it? And before you ask me,.. hehe.. i will be staying hundred yards away.

I did read the title but didn't bother to read more about it on yahoo news (or is it MSN?) I mean why would he worship animals living in the wild in such a way? I love animals but certainly I won't have a bath with crocodiles :) if these animals are to be worshipped, shouldn't people keep their distances from them, just to keep them pure and innocent and not contaminated by sins? hahah in this case that would be a good idea :)

Actually they are not worshiping the crocodiles, but before going into the shrine.. they bath in this crocs infested river.. and go to the shrine for offering prayers..

What a shame and he was so young. There's no way I would ever bathe in a crocodile's domain. It's just plain stupid to do such a thing.

Ooh he must have been a naughty boy then, because he was not blessed at all. It is a little bit strange how it does not normally happen and yet this man was eaten, hmmm I wonder what he did. I would definately not go into water that has crocs in it, heck I will not even paddle in the sea for fear of jellyfish so a croc filled river has no chance. I certainly would not be blessed anyway I would be eaten, I was a naughty girl in a previous life.

Hi there saivenkaat802003 How silly. Didn't he think his God would understand if he didn't want to bathe with crocs for fear of his life?

The action of him is so stupid and God does not ask him to step him the river full of crocs..

This has got to be one of the dumbest things people could do. Surely there are ways to "seek blessings" without risking your life doing so? No, I wouldn't be that stupid to swim with crocs "assuming" they wouldn't kill me.

Yea.. this is really disgusting to read.. how come people are so dumb and mute to the common thinkings? Seeking blessing from a croc! O! it makes me to shiver.
